"Dear District 181 Staff and Families,
The Board of Education has called a Special meeting for Friday, May 2 at Elm School (5:00 p.m.) for the purpose of approving the hiring of the new superintendent. We are very excited to welcome our new educational leader for District 181! While information about the finalist cannot be provided in advance of the meeting, please be assured that immediately following Board approval on Friday, we will share comprehensive information about this individual’s experience and education, as well as an overview of the Board’s search process.
The meeting will be public; any community member is invited to attend. We are planning a light reception after the meeting. A formal “meet and greet” event and celebration will be planned for a future date, along with school visits, and other opportunities to welcome our incoming superintendent.
On behalf of the Board of Education, we share our appreciation to all who helped support the search process. We look forward to a strong community partnership as we work together now and for the future of District 181.
