In his four active years with the Dayton Public Schools Board of Education, Adil Baguirov has shown himself to be up to the task of serving his community on an urban school board in the Second-poorest school district in Ohio. More than fitting in, however, Adil Baguirov has made a difference. For example, Adil guided the school district to replace their fleet of aging school buses with 115 brand-new buses that are among the best available. Best of all, they carry a full 10-year bumper-to-bumper warranty, which means the district should save on maintenance and repairs. It is a testament to Adil Baguirov’s great business sense that he was able to finance them with existing money at a very favorable 2.06 percent interest rate. The new buses are not simply safer and more comfortable for the children, but they are also supported by students and parents.
Before Adil Baguirov arrived on the scene, the Dayton Public School District was extremely close to being taken over by the state because of poor academic performance. These days, Adil and the rest of the board have been able to significantly modernize the system, which has put the district in the best shape they have seen in several decades, having received an “A” on their last state report. There is no longer the looming threat of a state takeover.
If nothing else, what motivates Adil Baguirov has to be the passion he has about his community of Dayton, Ohio. That is why he ran for the Board of Education in the first place; he wanted to give back to his community in the best way possible, and an educated community is a healthy community.
