Beavercreek has new HS principal



BEAVERCREEK — Beavercreek City Schools announced its new high school principal Feb. 13.

Pending approval from the board of education during its Feb. 18 meeting, Dale Wren will take over as principal for the 2020-2021 school year. He replaces George Caras, who resigned Dec. 31 after being on administrative leave.

Wren is currently the principal of Ankeney Middle School, a position he has held since 2015.

“No one is better suited for this critical leadership role than Dale Wren,” said Paul Otten, superintendent of Beavercreek City Schools. “Effectively leading our staff, students, families, and a community with high expectations is critical and I have no doubts Mr. Wren will do so in the highest possible manner.”

Wren was an assistant principal at Beavercreek High School from 2013-2015 where he was responsible for a host of duties on a daily basis. Prior to becoming an administrator, he completed a tenure in the classroom as a special education teacher at Beavercreek High School for 17 years.

Wren was raised in Beavercreek and a 1990 graduate of Beavercreek High School. He attended and completed his undergraduate work at Kent State University earning a bachelor of science in education and his special education teaching certificate, grades K-12. Graduate level work was completed at The University of Dayton that lead to a master of science in education and allied professions.

Upon approval from the board, Beavercreek City Schools will immediately begin the process of conducting a formal, comprehensive search for the next principal at Ankeney Middle School. The district is hopeful it will identify and recommended a candidate by early spring.
