As we near the start of school for 4000+ D181 students, we want to take a moment to comment on the resignation this week of Dr. Wahl, the Superintendent of the high school district -- D86 -- that most of our students will be attending in the future. Our comment has nothing to do with his resignation, the reasons for it, or what it means for the high school district. This blog is about D181, not D86. However, we want to commend all of the parents and community members who signed their names on comments they have posted after the Hinsdale Patch articles dealing with Dr. Wahl's resignation. Comments supporting and opposing the resignation and recent conduct of the D86 Board of Education members have been powerful and well reasoned. We hope that parents reading this blog will feel empowered to do the same and begin telling us how you feel about the Posts we have been publishing and our discussions on D181 issues.
Later this week we will begin a series on the Central Office Administrators who are "running" D181. We hope you will weigh in with your opinions. Stay tuned.
