MAPLE PARK – As the search for a new superintendent continues, the Kaneland School District 302 Board has planned a special meeting for 5:30 p.m. Monday at the district office at 47W326 Keslinger Road, Maple Park, on the campus of Kaneland High School.

Superintendent Jeff Schuler is leaving the district to become the superintendent at Wheaton Warrenville District 200 on Sept. 2. According to a news release, the board is considering options to “fulfill both the immediate needs of the district and ensure its long-term success.”

“For that reason, the board is seeking an interim superintendent to temporarily fill the vacancy and will begin the search for a permanent replacement in the fall.”

Earlier this month, the school board voted, 4-2, to accept Schuler’s resignation.

Board President Cheryl Krauspe indicated that “the selection of a superintendent for the Kaneland district is the most significant decision that our school board can make,” according to the release.

“In order to hire the best fit for our district, the process should be very careful, thoughtful and thorough hard work, with input from all segments of the educational community and its stakeholders,” Krauspe said, according to the release.
