The superintendent of Warsaw Community Schools has been named the Indiana Superintendent of the Year by Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents.

Warsaw's high school graduation rate has increased by almost 12% since Dr. Craig Hintz became superintendent in 2009.  That makes them 11th in the state for growth.

"At a time when school districts across the state are wrestling with declining resources and increased expectations, under Dr. Hintz's leadership Warsaw Community School Corporation is flourishing by maximizing outside resources," said Dr. Walter Bourke, IAPSS executive director.  "The district was selected earlier this year by the Indiana Department of Education to receive the state's largest innovation grant to create an elementary school science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) academy.  It was also the Organizational Partner of the Year for 2011 for OrthoWorx, a community-based initiative working with the orthopedic industry and other stakeholders in the Warsaw area.  Dr. Hintz and the district are using these grants and partnerships to develop strategic focus, enhance academic programs and provide leadership training for administrators and principals."

Before becoming superintendent in Warsaw, Hintz worked in Minnesota, Iowa, and Indianapolis.
