BATAVIA – Kris Monn, assistant superintendent for finance and operations for Batavia School District 101, is leaving the district to become the new school superintendent for Minooka Community Consolidated School District 201.
The Minooka School Board on Monday voted to hire Monn, who started with the Batavia School District in 2009.
“He will very much be missed, but we are thrilled for him and his new opportunity,” Batavia School Superintendent Lisa Hichens said. “He’s going to make a great superintendent.”
The Batavia School Board is expected to officially accept his resignation at its meeting July 21. Monn said he expects the board will accept his resignation, effective July 31. Hichens said the district will be filling Monn’s position.
Monn, 38, said the Minooka superintendent position seemed like a “perfect fit.”
“When I saw the traits that Minooka was looking for in the new superintendent, it just seemed like it would be a perfect fit for my background in school administration, especially on the financial side,” Monn said.
He said he will miss the district, especially the people he worked with.
“This is just an outstanding supportive community that really cherishes its schools,” Monn said. “They make it a very rewarding place to work.”
