Apr. 8—The leader of Kings Schools is resigning from his position effective this summer, he announced publicly this week.

Kings Superintendent Tim Ackermann recently submitted his resignation to the school board, effective July 31, to take an assistant superintendent's job with the Hamilton County Educational Services Center, said district officials.

According to a statement, Ackermann said his six years as leader of the 4,600-student district southern Warren County were satisfying.

"I am constantly telling people what an amazing place the Kings School district is. I am proud of the work that our team has been able to accomplish the last six years and look forward to the growth that will continue at Kings," he said.

Kings, which includes communities in Deerfield Twp., Landen, Kings Mills and South Lebanon, is regularly rated among the top academic performers in Ohio, and its high school has been lauded as among the top 100 in the U.S. by some national school ratings.

The Kings school board released a statement saying: "The board wishes to express their appreciation and gratitude to Mr. Ackermann for his effort, dedication, and leadership to the district these past six years."

Ackermann replaced former Kings Interim Superintendent Tim Spinner in 2015. Spinner is now the assistant superintendent for the school system.

In 2019 and 2020 Kings saw voters reject a $89.9 million bond tax for new school construction and renovations.

The school board said it will soon announce details of its coming superintendent search.
