About Marcia

I am Marcia Futel, candidate for the Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education. 

I come from a family of teachers and I am a product of the Chicago Public School system. I graduated from the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. Upon graduation, I moved here to Cincinnati and enjoyed a successful 23-year career in Programming, Project Management, and Team Leadership in the Information Technology field. I spent the last 18 of those years at Convergys leading teams of IT professionals responsible for delivering on multi-million dollar contracts. After leaving the corporate world, I joined my husband, Chuck, in our financial services agency which we have operated locally for over 30 years. The hallmark of our business is excellence in customer service as we help families meet their financial goals and dreams. 


Among the current field of candidates, I believe that I am uniquely qualified to serve on the CPS Board of Education. I have 30 years of continuous service as a parent and education advocate at the school building, district, and state level. My work on school and district-wide teams, leadership training for parents, and active involvement in my children’s educational experience has provided a solid knowledge base of the district. Our 3 children are CPS graduates, all holding 4-year college degrees from highly rated universities. I continue to have a vested interest in CPS’ success as a grandparent of a CPS student. My well-rounded career in the corporate world, non-profit and faith-based leadership teams, and as a business owner, has provided me with a strong foundation of experience and skills to make sound business decisions on their behalf.


I believe that a high quality public education is the great “equalizer” for our children. To make this happen for them, we must face head-on the challenges of educating ALL of our students through effective policies, strong, collaborative partnerships and engagement, and systems that promote accountability and transparency.  The ultimate goal is to have EVERY CPS graduate prepared for success in college and in their career choice. As your candidate for a seat on the Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education, I stand ready and able to work insuring that our schools measure up to this bar.
