Superintendent Lewandowski to retire after the 2021-2022 school year

To my esteemed colleagues in District 287 and beyond,

I have had the honor of serving as Superintendent of District 287 for the past 15 years. It is with sadness but also wonderful memories that I share with you my plans to retire at the end of the 2021-2022 school year. As part of an extended transition, the board is preparing a reduced contract at .75 FTE until my final retirement on June 30, 2022.

I have had the privilege of leading an organization that endlessly prioritizes the needs of children who attend our programs. For this reason and many others, it has been a career filled with rewarding experiences and a profound sense of purpose. 

Our shared commitment to serving the needs of students, families, and member districts has allowed for many successes and opportunities for partnership. I trust that the on-going commitment from all those in the District 287 community will continue to bring out the greatness in our students. 

I know many are interested in District 287’s transition to a new Superintendent, which will be led by the School Board. It is the Board’s goal to include the voices of all stakeholders in the process. Please see the message below from  Board Chair Regina Neville.

Most Sincerely,

Sandy Lewandowski
