The Rolling Hills Local School District has rescheduled its regular August meeting for 6:30 p.m. Monday at the district’s Central Office on Brick Church Road north of Byesville.

The Rolling Hills district is reportedly searching for a new superintendent after the services of Ryan Caldwell were terminated during a special meeting earlier this week.

An employee confirmed Caldwell is no longer employed by the district, but officials have not released a reason for the sudden departure of the man who served the district since 2012.

AVC Communications reported Rolling Hills Board President Dennis Dettra read a prepared statement during the special meeting, but no other information was released.

Dettra said “we’d like to thank Ryan for his years of service to our district and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” according to AVC Communications.

Dettra reportedly went on to say the district was excited to begin its search for a new superintendent.

Messages left by The Daily Jeffersonian seeking comment from Dettra and Caldwell were not returned prior to press time. A reporter also made attempts to contact the other four school board members, but was unsuccessful.

Messages left for district Treasurer Kandi Raach were also not returned prior to press time.

Caldwell was not present during the special meeting Monday.

AVC Communications reported the announcement followed an estimated 20-minute executive session. There was no elaboration or discussion following the announcement.

The board returned to executive session after the statement was read by Dettra, according to AVC Communication. No other action was taken, according to reports.

The regular meeting Monday at the district office is open to the public.
