Elyria Names New HR Director
Posted on 04/28/2022

On Wednesday, April 27, the Elyria Board of Education approved the appointment of the district's new Human Resources Director: Shane Newark. 

Currently Shane is the principal of Early College at Lorain County Community College but his ties to Elyria Schools run deep.

Shane was raised in Elyria and graduated in 1997 from Elyria High School. 

He earned his teaching license from Ashland University and returned to teach in Elyria. He was Social Studies teacher at Westwood Middle School for seven years before being named Assistant Principal in 2008.

In 2010, Shane moved up to Elyria High School as an Assistant Principal and was promoted to Associate Principal in 2011, where he was charged with the complexity of creating the master schedule of Elyria High School. 

In 2018, Shane left Elyria High School to head up Early College, a partner program between Lorain County Community College and Elyria City School District (and formerly Lorain Schools) where students can earn an associates degree while attending high school. 

Shane has shown great versatility on his career path to becoming the district's Human Resources Director. 

Shane resides in Elyria with his two sons.

The district is proud to welcome back Shane Newark to the Elyria Schools!
