Superintendent's Message


Welcome to Elida's Website!


Thank you for visiting the Elida Local Schools district website.  It is a privilege to serve the children and families of the Elida community.   Our staff strives to make sure students are successful and prepared for life after high school, whether that be through entering the workforce, going to college, or serving in the military.  It is our goal that when students graduate that they are college and career ready.

We are living in a challenging world, with many twists and turns to how students are going to learn.  Ultimately, we want to make sure that every child is academically challenged in a safe and supportive environment.  Our students and community take great pride in the achievement of our students, and their success can be directly attributed to the support they receive at home and from the community, as well as the hard work and dedication of our staff.

It is an honor to continue to serve as Superintendent of Elida Local Schools, and to lead the dedicated individuals who strive to help our students succeed.  This is done by offering our students numerous academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular options that help to develop the skills needed to be successful in the world around us.

Our website is full of useful information about the district.  Please take some time to look around and if you have questions that can't be answered on the website please do not hesitate to contact one of our school buildings, the principals, the teachers, the coaches, or myself if necessary.

Sincerely, Joel Mengerink, Superintendent
