With Contract Renewed, D101 Super Touts District's Status

Dr. Brian Barnhart will serve as the superintendent of Western Springs District 101 at least through the 2018-2019 school year.

As the outgoing Western Springs District 101 Board approved a contract extension that would keep him on board as superintendent through the 2018-2019 school year, Dr. Brian Barnhart said the District's current status sets it up well to tackle oncoming challenges, The Doings Western Springs reports.

According to the paper, Barnhart, an 11-year veteran of the super's office, praised the Distrcit's academic performance and fiscal responsibility, saying the District's financial shape will help prepare for new burdens caused by pension and health-care reforms.

“Things have gotten rolling. We have our technology initiative, we have curriculum work going on, we have the core assessment,” Barnhart told the paper, of recent District improvements. “The board feels I am a good fit with the district and that is hugely important to me."
