Former Lincolnwood Super Lands Prestigious Job
Former Lincolnwood School District 74 superintendent Mark Klaisner was recently hired by the Illinois State Board of Education for their top job, Skokie Patch reports.
Former Lincolnwood School District 74 superintendent Mark Klaisner was recently hired by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) as the new assistant superintendent for Kane County, according to the Kane County Regional Office of Education's website. Klaisner's new role is the highest position an educator can be hired for, as the superintendent for the ISBE is an elected position.
Klaisner resigned after Lincolnwood residents put pressure on the school district after uncovering reckless spending by the school district. The turmoil began in January and snowballed from there. Klaisner ultimately resigned while assistant superintendent Susan Bradt retired. Meanwhile, business superintendent Kevin Nohelty recently filed a $250,000 lawsuit against the school board after being terminated. The school board itself has seen three different board presidents in five months.
