New Superintendent Of Laurel Schools Focusing On Finances

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del. - The Laurel School District's new superintendent had his first day on the job.

49-year-old John Ewald was the former Principal of College Gardens Elementary School in Rockville, Maryland. He was hired in a September 19th school board vote. Ewald says his focus, right now, is financial stability especially after that recent budget shortfall.

"We look to be on a good path and we want to make sure we contain that with good oversight and accountability. We look forward to coming out of that being very successful financially, so we're able to pay our bills on time and provide our students with an outstanding education," said Ewald.

 He also says construction plans for Laurel Middle and High School are underway. He hopes to have that mapped out by November.
