School Board Looks Into Residency of Administrators and Other Issues

The Springfield School Board is discussing residency after a board member raised the issue of District 186 Administrators living outside the district boundaries.


Board Vice President Adam Lopez says that he'd like the incoming human resources director to check the status of some administrator's residency and clarify the policy of people holding certain positions having to live within the district's boundaries.


Board members say that there may be some violations from some holding administrative positions.


The District 186 board also took a step toward finding a new superintendent, tabbing a Suburban Chicago firm to search for a new district chief.


School Exec Connect has been awarded a $17,500 contract as the lowest bidder among five competitors.


The board reconvenes Monday to further discuss the search.


The third employee tied to the leaks of test score from Capital College Preparatory Academy will stay with the district.


Jennifer Gilson will move from a guidance counselor post to a yet to be determined classroom teacher post. Two others tied to the leaks have resigned.


Board members Scott McFarland and Judy Johnson voted against the reassignment.


Interim Superintendent Bob Leming recommended the shift, noting that termination would bring an extended legal process.


The leak of test scores was investigated by police but led to no criminal charges.
