Dr. Caver will transition with Ellen McWilliams-Woods, Ph.D., prior to her departure and says she is looking forward to meeting the staff, students and families of Akron Public Schools.

Superintendent Christine Fowler Mack welcomed Caver, saying, “We look forward to working with Tamea and benefitting from her knowledge, experience and leadership. She is definitely looking forward to learning from our team, building relationships, and understanding how she can support our work by leading our district with integrity, energy and a focus on excellence through equity.”
