D219 Board to Engage Search Firm for Next Superintendent Search

In anticipation of Superintendent Steven Isoye’s planned retirement at the end of the 2021-22 school year, the Niles Township High School District 219 Board of Education has begun discussing the criteria the Board would like to use to decide which search firm to select to conduct the search for the district’s next superintendent.

Dr. Steven T. Isoye was named Superintendent of Niles Township High School District 219 in May 2016, and he began the job that July. He was originally given a three-year contract, which the Board extended for another three years in 2019, with the term ending June 30, 2022.

Before coming to D219, Dr. Isoye served as Superintendent of Oak Park and River Forest High School District 200 for six years. Dr. Isoye was principal of Maine East High School in Park Ridge from 2007 to 2010; during that time, he was named 2010-2011 Illinois High School Principal of the Year by the Horace Mann/Illinois Principals Association. Since 1998, he has served on the Board of Trustees for the Illinois Math and Science Academy. In 1998, he was named the Illinois State Teacher of the Year by the Illinois State Board of Education. 

“The Board of Education appreciates the work Dr. Isoye has done over the years,” said Board President David Ko, “and we look forward to his final year being the best of them all.”
