After completing a nationwide search that included candidates from Indiana and other states, the Plainfield School Board in 2008 selected Plainfield High School Principal Scott Olinger as the Corporation's next Superintendent of Schools.

With Bachelor's and Masters degrees from Butler University, most of Scott's teaching career took place in Central Indiana. In 2002, he was named Principal of Batesville High School. Before moving to Plainfield High School in 2005, Scott was named District 10 Principal of the Year.

Scott earned his Education Specialist degree from Indiana State University in 2005.

Plainfield stakeholders were asked for their input into the selection of the superintendent, and recommendations included someone who was a community-minded leader, focused on and committed to students. In addition, having a vision, being an excellent communicator and an outstanding role model topped the list.

Scott and his wife, Heather, live in Plainfield where their three daughters have graduated from, or are attending, Plainfield schools.
