Welcome from OSSB Principal Danny Ransey

OSSB Principal Danny Ransey Hello, my name is Danny Ransey, and I am the new principal at Ohio State School for the Blind. I have served as an Assistant Principal for the last five years in Columbus City Schools. I have been in education for 15 years, teaching Math, Science, Reading and Social Studies to multiple grades.

I believe that all students have a right to a quality education. It is our job to provide students with the skills necessary to become productive citizens. I am excited to work alongside an excellent staff to build lifelong learners. I look forward to building positive relationships with students, families, and members in the community. If I can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.

Let’s have a wonderful year!
