Bay High's Aaron Ereditario to lead Bay Middle School
The Bay Village Board of Education approved the selection of Aaron Ereditario, currently assistant principal at Bay High School, to replace Sean McAndrews as principal of Bay Middle School. McAndrews announced his retirement earlier in June.
While at Bay High, Ereditario worked closely with teachers, parents and support staff to improve progress in every aspect of the student experience, from learning to discipline to their mental health. He was the lead organizer of the district’s Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) model, a system that recognizes and supports positive interpersonal skills that Ereditario believes will serve students well, both in school and in work.
Extremely community-focused, the Bay Village resident has served on the boards of Bay Family Services, the Westshore Enforcement Bureau and the Bay Village Education Foundation. Working with the Bay High PTSA, he led the May-In-Bay 5K race and fundraiser.
“Aaron has proven himself to be a strong leader in our district and a caring advocate for Bay High students,” said Superintendent Jodie Hausmann. “He is an impressive, relationship-oriented administrator, and I am confident that staff, parents and especially students will appreciate that same dedication and talent at Bay Middle School.”
Ereditario was hired as assistant principal at Bay High School in 2011. Prior to that, he served as assistant principal at Vermilion High School and taught Spanish at Avon High School and at Open Door Christian Schools. He also coached freshman football and basketball while at Avon High School.
“I am incredibly humbled and at the same time very excited. Bay Middle School is a special place with a terrific staff, talented student body, supportive parents and an invested community,” said Ereditario. “I am looking forward to building high quality relationships and learning how Bay Middle School continues to shine."
Ereditario holds an MBA from Baldwin Wallace University, a Master of Education degree from Ashland University, and bachelor's degrees in Spanish and psychology, both from the University of North Dakota. He and his wife, Bridget, have three children, all attending the Bay Village Schools. The family also fosters three younger children, one attending Bay Village Schools.
