At the conclusion of an executive session during a Wednesday (July 13, 2022) special session of the D49 Board of Education, we would like to share the following announcement:
The Board of Education is grateful for the expertise and performance of our chief officers; we especially honor Brett Ridgway and Pedro Almeida for the foundations they laid through their leadership and service to District 49.
For the 2022-23 school year, we will build on those foundations by contracting with Peter Hilts to serve as Chief Executive Officer to organize and lead the administrative team.
As a unified, five-member board, we are committed to working with each other and our administrative leaders in a spirit of cooperation, collaboration, and communication that will advance District 49 as The Best Choice to Learn, Work, and Lead.
John Graham, for the Board of Education, and Peter Hilts, for the D49 Administration
