FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Southwest Allen County Schools officially has a new Superintendent.
Dr. Park Ginder’s contract was approved by school board trustees Tuesday night, officially confirming his appointment.

He has also served as the principal at Dekalb High School, Assistant Principal at Carroll High School, and Department Head and Art Teacher at Northrop High School and Shawnee Middle School.
“SACS is a district with an outstanding reputation of education excellence and a highly
supportive and engaged community,” Ginder said. “I am honored and eager
to work collaboratively with the school board, staff, and parents of the SACS community
to provide exceptional education experiences for all our learners.”
He officially replaces former Superintendent Dr. Phil Downs, who retired early last month.

staff, and community. We are confident Dr. Ginder will continue SACS’ rich tradition of
excellence preparing today’s learners for tomorrow’s opportunities.”
