D302: Superintendent Schuler leaves for D200
The Kaneland School District announced the resignation of Superintendent Dr. Jeff Schuler effective Sept. 2, 2014.
At a special meeting Monday, the Wheaton Warrenville Community Unit School District 200 voted in favor of hiring the Kaneland superintendent.
In a press release release, D302 Board President Cheryl Krauspe said the District is sad to see Schuler leave Kaneland, but recognized the reasons he was sought after as well as the professional opportunity the new position presents. “We are proud of our accomplishments under Dr. Schuler’s four years of educational leadership,” she said. “He is leaving us in a good position. We believe that the strong leadership team built by Dr. Schuler, in partnership with the Board of Education, and our strong committed staff will ensure that our strategic focus remains steadfast – to continue inspiring excellence for all students as we graduate them college, career and community ready. We will continue to move forward.”
Schuler was selected by the D200 board following an extensive interview process.
“We were very fortunate to have several highly qualified candidates apply for the position,” D200 Board President Barbara Intihar said. “Of all the candidates, Dr. Schuler’s proven ability to connect with the community, promote student learning, and build instructional leadership within the staff – all recommendations of the ENGAGE 200 initiative – stood out most clearly. Those qualities, plus his experience navigating fiscal and operational challenges in a complex unit school district, led us to choose him as our next superintendent. We welcome him to District 200, and we look forward to a long professional relationship with him.”
