The Avon Board of School Trustees has named Dr. Scott Wyndham as the next Superintendent to lead Avon Community School Corporation (ACSC) effective July 1, 2020. He will succeed Dr. Margaret Hoernemann who is retiring after leading the district for eight years. The Board will hold a public hearing on Dr. Wyndham’s selection on June 9, 2020.
Dr. Wyndham has served as Assistant Superintendent and Director of Finance & Operations for ACSC since 2016. He is responsible for oversight of the district’s business and operations and has helped lead Avon Schools through complex financial times. Prior to joining Avon Schools, Dr. Wyndham was Director of Special Education for Brownsburg Community School Corporation and served as a building and district administrator in the MSD of Wayne Township. He has taught at the elementary and high school level prior to moving into administration.
“We received many excellent applicants from inside and outside of Indiana. Following an extensive search that included input from our community members, families, staff and students, Dr. Wyndham emerged as the frontrunner,” said ACSC Board President Anne Engelhardt. “We are confident in his ability and vision to continue moving the district forward in academic growth, equity and financial efficiency.”
Dr. Wyndham shared, “I am honored to continue serving the Avon community as the next Superintendent. The vision and leadership of the Board of School Trustees was evident throughout the interview process and I believe we are poised to continue making great progress as a school district. I am thankful to Dr. Hoernemann for her strong leadership of ACSC for the past eight years and to the ACSC staff working hard every day for our students. My family has called Avon home for 13 years and I am honored to work and live in this great community.”
Dr. Wyndham is an active Avon resident. He is involved in numerous community groups, including Kiwanis, Hendricks Regional Health YMCA Advisory Board, Oriole Advocates, and is a graduate of Leadership Hendricks County.
Dr. Wyndham and his wife Autumn have two daughters who attend Avon Schools.
