About the district
Dublin outperforms the rest of Ohio in terms of higher education attainment, median income and poverty rate. The 2010 U.S. Census found that 71.3% of Dublin residents over 25 years old held undergraduate degrees compared to a 24.5% rate for the state of Ohio. Dublin had a median income of $113,361 in 2010 compared to $48,071 for Ohio. The poverty rate for Dublin was 3.1% in 2010 compared to an 14.8% rate for the rest of the state.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
The current Superintendent of Dublin City Schools is Todd F. Hoadley. He assumed the position in August 2013 after serving for nine years as the Superintendent of Olmsted Falls City Schools.
The Dublin Board of Education consists of five members who are elected at-large to four-year terms. Each member can be compensated on a per-meeting basis for up to 24 meetings per year. The district also reimburses travel expenses for members attending approved conferences and training sessions. Board members can also opt into the School Employees Retirement System after 30 days of service.
