Mr. Bradley D. Kjar

Superintendent of Ravenna Public Schools

I am extremely excited for the opportunity to serve Ravenna Public Schools as Superintendent. Heidi, Kaleb(11), Cooper(10), and Ruby(6) enjoy living and working in Ravenna. It is truly a great place to live and raise a family. I am beginning my 20th year as a professional educator, my 6th at Ravenna, and my 1st as Superintendent. I enjoy being involved in the community as much as possible and about anything sports related, particularly golf and the Green Bay Packers. If you have any questions about Ravenna Public Schools please reach out to me anytime. It is a great day to be a Bluejay!
