During its February 18, 2020, public meeting, the Beavercreek Board of Education approved the employment of Dale Wren as principal of Beavercreek High School starting with the 2020 - 2021 school year.
Mr. Wren is currently the principal of Ankeney Middle School, a position he has held since 2015. Mr. Wren was an assistant principal at Beavercreek High School from 2013 to 2015 where he was responsible for a host of duties on a daily basis. Prior to becoming an administrator, he completed a successful tenure in the classroom as a special education teacher at Beavercreek High School for seventeen years.
Mr. Wren was raised in Beavercreek and a 1990 graduate of Beavercreek High School. He attended and completed his undergraduate work at Kent State University earning a Bachelor of Science in Education and his Special Education Teaching Certificate, Grades K-12. Graduate level work was completed at The University of Dayton that lead to a Master of Science in Education and Allied Professions.
"No one is better suited for this critical leadership role than Dale Wren", said Paul Otten, Superintendent of Beavercreek City Schools. With a long, successful career of serving the Beavercreek community and the needs of its children, Wren is uniquely qualified to lead the high- performing Beavercreek High School well into the future. Otten continues, "Effectively leading our staff, students, families, and a community with high expectations is critical and I have no doubts Mr. Wren will do so in the highest possible manner."
Upon approval from the Board of Education, Beavercreek City Schools will immediately begin the process of conducting a formal, comprehensive search for the next principal at Ankeney Middle School. The district is hopeful it will identify and recommended a candidate by early spring.
