The Oswego 308 Board of Education unanimously approved the hiring of a new assistant superintendent of teaching and learning.
Dr. Judy Minor, who currently serves as the assistant superintendent of teaching and learning at School District 99, will begin her position within Oswego 308 on July 1.
She replaces Marsha Hollis, who left the district last June. Minor’s base salary is $135,000.
Superintendent Matthew Wendt said there were over 40 candidates for the position, which was narrowed to twelve. “We were very pleased with having parents, faculty, staff members and administration help us find the best person for the job.”
Minor comes to District 308 with more than 18 years in education. Before District 99, Minor served as the director of staff support services in Township High School District 214 in Arlington Heights and director of curriculum, instruction and staff development at Community High School District 94 in West Chicago.
She previously served to that as an English/interdisciplinary teacher in Community High School District 94 in West Chicago and served a substitute teacher for a year in Bithburg, Germany.
Minor also worked in journalism for two different publications from 1987-1992 and has authored six education publications.
“I really appreciate having the opportunity to recommend an exceptional leader for this very important position in our district,” said Wendt. “She brings a world class lens to a district that has aspirations of moving forward towards world class.”
