Welcome to the Treasurer’s Office!

Thank you for your interest in the financial position of Oak Hills Local School District.  Our District continues to serve the communities of Green Township & Delhi Township at the highest level by providing a top notch education at a low cost to our local taxpayer.  Oak Hills is a leader in public education in the State of Ohio; evident by the District’s history of being excellent stewards of the community’s resources.  The District only had one voted tax levy increase in 20 years.  Ongoing communication and transparency have assisted our District in forming solid relationships with our constituency.

As the Treasurer/CFO of Oak Hills Local School District, I encourage you to contact me if you have questions. I can be reached by email at [email protected] or on Twitter @OHLSD_Treasurer.
