Many districts require an Administrative Certificate. Usually in a larger district that would be an automatic. Dayton has attracted some quality candidates in the past, no sure why they would deviate from that. Baker has publically stated Dunbar "did NOT prepare him for post HS" (heard it straight from the horses mouth) so maybe he sold them on his vision on preparing student/athletes from the real world (which now looks like lie, hide and lie some more).
Nothing against the MAN, he may be a great father, but he is lacking as an AD.

How does a guy without any certifications become the AD overseeing 5 high schools?

Because he was a standout OSU player, had a hot second in the NBA, basically a local celebrity.

Actually six. Stivers does not have Football but all other sports.
IMO he has been overwhelmed by the duties. I really think he thought he would just be a figure head and/or everyone would jump on what he says.
Instead he often comes across as arrogant and condescending (example, a coach at the stadium says "how you doing Coach Baker". Baker's response was "I'm not a coach, I'm MISTER Baker." C'mon man, get off your high horse.

Trotwood was happy to see him go. Middletown was happy to see him go. The pro team (if you can call it that) Jets were a joke. Not sure what the attraction is other than being a big DPS alum

Pullen seamed like a good man and a great coach ! They ran him because he called them out because Dunbar threw a football game . Sad situation . Dunbar is reaping what they sow and it may be years to recover . Wish the school well !

I don't know if he has a AD certificate or not: I couldn't find a
source that lists any of LaMark Baker (his actual name) certificates
or degrees.

I listed his Coaching certificate because by default Ohio (ODE) requires
a coach to have a coaching permit.

In my opinion he lacks ethics.

Just a lot of head shaking here. I would agree about the job overwhelming him. Not prepared at all and just showing up isn't enough. The position requires real work and leadership. IMO he doesn't deserve to be called "Coach Baker" because if you deserve that title it is a compliment.

DDN continues their deep dive into this situation. Some breakdown of Chuck Taylor's testimony. Shockingly, he wouldn't return the reporter's calls.

So how much weight does Taylor's word carry if he ever gives sworn
testimony again?

I probably watched that video 50 times just to make sure I value my integrity just to make sure that kid was not on the floor, Taylor said in his March 6 testimony.
He watched the video 50 times to make sure they couldn't catch him in his lie.
If they can't see him in the video, then they'll believe me that he was in the locker room. And they did believe him. Ridiculous.

And we've long lost the fact that they didn't suspend the guys off the bench anyways. Oops. My bad. I forgot. We thought it was just a suggestion.

And officials decisions are pretty much final. The officials submit the numbers of the kids involved in the melee to Columbus. The coaches and administration besmirched the reputation of those officials as well. No apologies there. They are all a joke. Embarassing. Unprofessionalism top to bottom.

How many coaches have lied now in order to move on in the playoffs? They tried to throw a football game, now this. How is that AD still employed?

KBaller I can't believe member1 isn't answering all of the questions about Dunbar right now--he/she had all of the answers at the time of the sham defense that Dunbar coaches were using during the "trial"--he said I'd be eating "alot of crow"--member1 has been crickets since last week.

As I said in March--the OHSAA always wins!!

The fact that a school district spent $ fighting the suspension when they have a team and students and parents who so readily jumped into a fight is a huge problem.

Mark Baker out as AD. Now associate director of truancy for the district for 2018-19. Shawna Welch the new district AD.

Geez- what kind of dirt does this guy have on the school board members?? His actions have proven that he clearly shouldn't be leading kids.

HC Taylor shouldn't be swearing-in court witnesses either!
WTF Montgomery County?

Baker is not a court bailiff--the HC at Dunbar is--pretty sure he can't return as coach after the sham court case and lies

DPS has fired multiple employees lately just after signing multiple-year contract extensions. Baker has one more year on his contract so they get rid of him but still make him do something.
It is surprising they couldn't fire him for just cause.
Also funny are his comments that thing are better (throwing Jonas Smith, prior AD under bus) and when asked if he shared responsibility on Dunbar things deflected and said it's all on them Great oversight buddy.
