Board Office

Robert Dunn


Hello! My name is Robert Dunn and I have the privilege of being the Superintendent of Southeast Local Schools. I have been blessed to work with the amazing students of SHS for the past 30 years. During that span, I was a social studies teacher for 17 years, assistant principal for two years, and principal for 6 years. I've also had the opportunity to coach basketball, cross country, and track. My wife Becky is a guidance counselor at SHS and we enjoy this place so much we moved into the district so our two children could go to school here. Our daughter Madison is a 2015 Southeast graduate and our son Carson is currently in 11th grade.  If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions please do not hesitate to email or call me (330-654-5841 ext. 1203). For timely information and updates please consider following me on Twitter ([email protected]). Have a great day and GO PIRATES!
