Much of this meeting will be devoted to Unit 4's search for a new superintendent. Jim Helton, from the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), and Board President Chris Kloeppel will give an update regarding the search.

Other highlights of Monday's agenda: We will have the pleasure of recognizing our October 2016 Staff Spotlight winner -- Claire Vail, Special Education Teacher at Centennial High School. In addition, those in attendance can get a preview of school board issues that are addressed at the state level, when our Unit 4 Board members review the proposed revisions to the 2016 IASB Resolutions Committee Report prior to the Delegate Assembly meeting on November 19th in Chicago, IL.
