Dr. Durant who has been the district's assistant superintendent since August 2008 will succeed Dr. Jerome Pecko who is retiring this summer. "Toledo has been very good to me as I have had opportunities to work with the youth and in education and I am looking forward to helping others get the same opportunities afforded to me," Dr. Durant said.
Dr. Durant previously served as principal of Riverside Elementary from August 2005 to August 2008. He earned a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Toledo in 1998 and a Master's Degree from the University of Toledo in 2002.
