West Chicago District 33’s Board of Education announced Monday evening that it has selected Ms. Kristina Davis, , Ed.S., as the interim superintendent for the 2019/2020 school year. The Board arrived at this decision after learning in February that District 133’s current superintendent Dr. Charles Johns would be taking a new position as superintendent of Glenbrook High School District 225 in the fall of 2019.
The board stated, “We have utmost confidence in Ms. Davis’ leadership, character and dedication to the students, families, staff and community of District 33. Her experience, leadership skills, and continuity in our district are invaluable. We look forward to her ability to carry forward the good work already taking place in our district.”
After the upcoming board election in April and the seating of the new board members, there will likely be a decision made to conduct a full superintendent search utilizing a search firm beginning in the fall of 2020. The board is committed to gathering stakeholder feedback when the formal search process gets underway. In regards to the appointment of Ms. Davis as interim superintendent, Dr. Charles Johns stated, “I am delighted to share that the D33 Board of Education has appointed Kristina Davis to be the Interim Superintendent for the 2019-2020 school year. Kristina has worked in the district for nearly ten years and has served in several different capacities. She possesses a tremendous passion for our core mission and values and a deep commitment to our students and staff. Aside from a firm understanding of the strategic direction of the district, she has developed the relationships necessary to get this work done.”
Over the next few months, Davis will be working with Dr. Johns to ensure a smooth transition. She will officially begin her interim duties on July 1, 2019.
