Tecumseh superintendent plans to retire before next school year


The Tecumseh Local Schools superintendent has decided to retire next year.

Norm Glismann, who has been with the district for about three years, said in an emailed statement that he is ready to embrace a change.

“This is my 42nd year in education, my 33rd as an administrator and my 19th as a superintendent,” Glismann said.

He said the job is rewarding but tough and that it is now time for him to move on.

“These positions are very stressful and very time-consuming,” Glismann said, “I’m tired, and I’m ready to begin a new chapter in my life.”

His last day with the district will be July 31 of next year, he said, before the start of the 2018-19 school year.

He made a base salary of $120,000 this year, according to public records. He was the second-highest-paid superintendent in Clark and Champaign counties.

Glismann served as the superintendent at Graham Local Schools before he was hired at Tecumseh. He replaced former Tecumseh Superintendent Brad Martin, who was caught stealing money from the district.

Before Graham, he served as superintendent of the Yellow Springs school district.
