The Lyons Township High School Board of Education on Tuesday announced Brian Stachacz as the new District 204 Director of Business Services, beginning in May 30. He will replace David Sellers, who is retiring at the end of May after more than two decade of service to the district and its students - 11 as Director of Business Services and another dozen in the Technology Department.
Stachacz has spent his entire professional career in North Palos School District 117, beginning in 1995 as a social science teacher at Conrady Junior High. After three years in the classroom, he then served as a dean of students at the same junior high for three years. In 2001, he served as the assistant business manager for the district for one year before assuming the role of Assistant Superintendent for Business and District Treasurer, a position he has held since 2002.
“I look forward to serving as the next business manager at Lyons Township High School and I am confident I can continue the district’s tradition of excellent fiscal management,” Stachacz said. “There are many challenges and obstacles to understanding school finance and the associated accounting procedures, and I look forward to communicating with all LT audiences- students, staff, administrators, parents and community members,” he added.
“Mr. Stachacz brings a wealth of knowledge to the district. As a teacher, administrator and financial expert, he knows school finances and has more than a decade of experience. He is enthusiastic and is anxious to begin his career at LTHS. He is an outstanding fit for our students and staff,” said Superintendent Dr. Timothy Kilrea.
Stachacz received a bachelor’s degree in History and Secondary Education from Northern Illinois University, a master’s from Governors State University in Educational Administration and School Finance, and holds a Chief School Business Official certificate. Stachacz signed a one-year contract with a salary of $149,000.
