DAYTON (WDTN) — Rhonda Corr has earned an extended stay as the Superintendent of Dayton Public Schools.

The school board on Tuesday night voted to extend her contract for three years.

The board approved the extension during an executive session.

Board members say they’re pleased with the direction Corr is taking the district so far in her first year.

“We are pleased with the momentum that the district is experiencing right now and with Superintendent Corr leading us,” said school board President Robert Walker. “We feel very positive and we want to affirm the work that she’s done with us already.”

Corr was hired as superintendent in July of 2016. She originally signed a one-year contract to replace former Superintendent Lori Ward. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
