Lydia Solomon is seeking re-election to her third term on the Radnor Township School Board. Lydia has a B.S. from Cornell University and a M.S. from the University of California, both in Economics. In addition, she holds a M.A. Specialist Degree in School Psychology from Immaculata University. She has worked as a school psychologist for several years, and has been employed as a college professor teaching in the Education Department at Eastern University. She has been the PTO President for elementary, middle, and high school levels in Radnor and has three children who are all Radnor graduates.
While on the Board, Lydia served as the Chair of the Curriculum, Policy, and Government Relations Committees and is currently the Chair of the Facilities Committee. She has served as the representative to the Delaware County Intermediate Unit – DCIU, the PTO Coordinating Council, and is the current board representative to the DCCC Liaison Committee. Lydia states, “I am extremely proud of the work we have accomplished since I joined the Radnor School Board eight years ago. Our financial situation is sound due to painstaking attention to all expenditures. The Board recently hired a new superintendent and has restored an emphasis on innovative curriculum and instruction, such as Full-Day Kindergarten and a new Math curriculum. My focus continues to be providing the best educational experience to every Radnor student at the best price.” Lydia serves as a champion for all students, while balancing a responsibility to the taxpayer to stay fiscally smart. She believes the best educational outcome can be achieved through open and transparent dialogue with all stakeholders to come up with a win-win solution.
