Elgin Unit School District 46 is the second largest in Illinois. Only Chicago is larger.
Its relatively long term Chief Financial Officer John Prince went off to Plainfield and was replaced by McHenry County College’s finance guy Ron Ally.
He lasted a year until he went to back to the world of community colleges at Harper.
Now U46 has promoted Prairie Grove Grade School Board member Dale Burnidge as a partial replacement.
Not quite Chief Financial Officer, Director of Financial Operations, instead.
Burnidge will earn $105,250.
The district is facing a $40 million hole in spite of passing a massive Working Case Fund referendum a couple of years ago.
