Mrs. Jennifer Polak
Greetings! My Name is Jennifer Polak and I am the Principal of McKinley Elementary and the Director of Special Education Services for the Fairport Harbor Exempted Village Schools. I am currently in my 9th year in the district and feel very fortunate to be leading a team of such remarkable educators! The rich history and sense of community in the Fairport Harbor Schools is powerful and transformative. This is evidenced through the immense growth we have experienced over the years. The current initiatives and forwarding thinking staff have positioned us well for continued success in the future. I believe that achieving excellence in education requires vision, organizational planning and collaboration. I am a results-oriented leader with a desire to ensure that all students have access to the education that will inspire them to reach their fullest potential! My undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and Reading (PK-5) was obtained from Norte Dame College and my graduate degree in Educational Administration from Ashland University. I look forward to continuing to meet the needs of our learning community, channeling district resources toward empowering educators who understand their responsibility for the education of every student entrusted to them. I firmly believe that through the development of collaborative cultures and aligning of efforts toward the common goal of student achievement, the cumulative positive impact of our exemplary professionals can be maximized!
