Saturday McHenry County Blog wrote about Special Education Director Cheryl Kalkirtz’ leaving the Huntley School District administrative building.
In a Monday article, it was revealed that Karen Aylward had been appointed Interim Director.
In that article, I told of not being able to find a certificate endorsement for her to be a Special Education Director.
A person commented under the article:
“I believe that is why this is an interim position. Either Karen Aylward will be required to get her certification or it will be filled by a qualified candidate come July 1. The state can grant probational status on candidates who do not hold the correct endorsements for a period of 1 year. Which in my guess is what is happening here.”
That makes sense to me.
What is raising my eyebrows today is what you see below, presented at the August 13, 2009, Special Ed Parent Advisory Committee meeting:
What is a “Type 75 Director of Special Education Endorsement?”
So far, neither of the Heralds have written a story about the revolving door nature of Special Education administrators in District 158.
