At the end of the School District 166 school board meeting on Thursday, August 16, Principal Bill DeWitt announced that he would be resigning to take another principal job in the Unity School District in Wisconsin. 

Principal DeWitt explained that he had very much enjoyed his time at School District 166 and that it was a very difficult decision. He said it was hard to leave the "fantastic team" at Cook County Schools. However, he said the move is best for his family, as they will be much nearer his extended family. 

At the School Board meeting, the board expressed disappointment and thanked Principal DeWitt for his good work in the district. They added their best wishes. 

After the meeting, WTIP's Jay Andersen spoke with Superintendent Dr. Bill Crandall about the resignation and other school board matters. Here's that conversation.
