— Keith St. Pierre, superintendent of Sugarcreek-Bellbrook Schools, has announced his resignation after serving the district for more than two decades.
St. Pierre is on extended leave for medical reasons and his resignation will be effective in January, according to Jeffrey Lewis, the district’s business manager who has stepped in to serve as acting superintendent.

The district has hired K-12 Business Consulting to help in the search for the next superintendent. The consultants will be hosting a series of forums on Oct. 24 with students, staff and community members to gauge preferences for the district’s next top administrator.
The consultants will also provide a survey on the district’s website where residents can submit answers to questions related to the superintendent search.
Lewis said the school board will likely interview potential candidates starting in December and in February hire someone to fill the role and start working next school year.
St. Pierre’s salary was $115,319 in 2016, according to the Dayton Daily News I-Team Payroll Project.
St. Pierre has been Sugarcreek-Bellbrook Schools superintendent for 24 years and has overseen the district as it has grown with new schools and more students.
Lewis, former Xenia schools superintendent, said St. Pierre “leaves quite a legacy,” seeing the district through to become one of the top performing public schools in the state.
“A good leader creates a smooth sailing ship,” Lewis said. “I will try to keep it on course until we get a new person on board some time next summer.”
Enrollment this year is at approximately 2,800 students, up by about 60 from last year. Lewis said the district could still see more enrollment growth this school year as homes and apartment buildings under construction get finished.
