Washington Local Schools hires new superintendent

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Kadee Anstadt will lead the Washington Local school district after being selected by the school board for the top spot Friday.

Anstad was previously the assistant superintendent at Perrysburg Schools.

“Dr. Anstadt was a finalist for the Washington Local Schools Superintendent search in 2016.Her familiarity with the local community, and already having been vetted by the Ohio School Board Association during their national search in 2016, made us very comfortable with hiring her permanently,” said President Mark Hughes. “We believe she is the best fit for Washington Local Schools and will help us continue to move the district forward.”

Dr. Anstadt will begin her tenure in the district on August 16. She has been granted a contract until July 2022 that will pay her $143,000 with a $5,000 educational stipend for holding a Doctorate.
