Meet the Westlake Board of Education Candidates: Carol Winter

Carol Winter

I’m Carol Winter and I am honored to have served Westlake students and our entire community as a member and past president of the Westlake Board of Education since 2008. Additionally, I’m humbled at the opportunity to work with the board and community for another four years to provide excellent educational programming for our students at a great value to our taxpayers!

A Westlake resident for 14 years, my husband, Kevin, and I are proud parents of Marty, a 2006 WHS graduate, and Gwynnie, a sophomore at WHS. My background in education includes experience as a teacher and principal. I am also a KSU doctoral candidate in educational administration.

As an educator and parent, I’m extremely pleased with our district’s accomplishments: Westlake High school and all elementary schools named International Baccalaureate world schools, our world languages program begins in first grade, we have the No. 1 program in the state for gifted and talented students, and we’re in the top 3 percent of Ohio school districts for the number of teachers with master's degrees resulting in stronger instruction and we have new and renovated schools for our fifth- to twelfth-graders. 

Financially our bond rating puts us in the top 10 percent of all school districts in Ohio while we’re also in the bottom 10 percent of all school districts in the county for school taxes.

I look forward to serving another 4 years, listening to you and making our schools great! For more information about me, visit For more information about Westlake City Schools, visit
