John D. Stanford, an administrator in the Columbus City Schools in Ohio, has been chosen as the next Allentown superintendent.

It appears Allentown School District (ASD) students will soon welcome a new leader.

Listen to the story.

The city’s school board offered its superintendent role to John D. Stanford.

In a news release announcing the selection, ASD called Stanford a “dedicated public servant.” The district also highlighted Stanford’s two decades of experience in education, nonprofit, and public policy work. 

ASD officials also noted that Stanford spent 15 years working for Columbus City Schools in Ohio and held the role of executive assistant for Education to former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland.

Stanford is expected to begin his role with the district in November. He’s replacing former Superintendent Thomas Parker who resigned earlier this year. 

The board will vote on Stanford’s employment agreement on Sept. 23.
