Jeff Modaff, principal at the Brokaw Early Learning Center, has accepted a position as principal at Batavia School District 101’s Grace McWayne Elementary School, according to a news release from District 308. His first day on the job will be July 1.
Modaff, who grew up in Wheaton, started in District 308 in 2008 when he was hired as an assistant principal at Wolf’s Crossing Elementary School. He took over the top spot at Brokaw in 2009.
According to the district, “Modaff worked to expand the early learning program by opening up the school to District 308 students on a tuition-basis, increasing enrollment at the center to approximately 500 students.”
“Jeff has done an outstanding job for our school district,” said Dan O’Donnell, District 308 superintendent. “Through a great deal of compassion and understanding he leads our youngest students through their incredibly important first years of education. It is obvious how much he cares for his students, and in return, how much they care for him. Jeff will be dearly missed by our preschool students, parents and administrative team.”
In addition to several district administration officials, Modaff is the third building principal to leave District 308 in recent months. both handed in their resignations in April.
