To Our District 67 and District 115 Communities:
When we launched our District 67 and District 115 joint superintendent search back in January, we promised we would keep the community engaged and updated along the way.
Since our last update, the Boards have worked in collaboration with search firm HYA to vet candidates. Following an extensive interview process, we have narrowed the field to three individuals who were introduced to the community last week during our Meet the Candidates Forum. It was exciting to see the finalists discuss their visions for our Districts with leaders across the community. For those unable to tune in, we are sharing a recording of that program here.
Following last week’s forum, the Boards conducted final-round interviews and deliberated our path forward. We are pleased to report that we are on track to take action in open session on the next Superintendent of the Lake Forest Schools later this month.
On behalf of both Boards, we are grateful to our community for your active engagement and generous sharing of insight during this process. Through our digital survey, focus groups, and community forums, you’ve provided us with a clear foundation for our search and have rightly set the bar high for the next leader of our schools.
We look forward to sharing more news with you soon.
