District 153’s Mitchell named ‘Superintendent of Distinction’

Dale Mitchell got a Superman cape Monday to recognize him as a "super superintendent" as part of the Homewood District 153 celebration marking his selection as the 2019 Superintendent of Distinction from the South Suburbs. His peers in the Illinois Association of School Administrators voted for Mitchell to receive the honor for his leadership, professionalism, communication and community involvement. 

H-F board member Jody Scariano says superintendent’s merit pay vote ‘about politics’

District 233 school board member Jody Scariano believes Homewood-Flossmoor High School Superintendent Von Mansfield was given an inappropriate amount of merit pay.
 
The $14,600 in merit pay was approved on a 6-1 vote at the Sept. 19 school board meeting. Board members Annette Bannon, Debbie Berman, John Farrell, Steve Anderson, Tim Wenckus and Beth Larocca voted to approve the merit pay.
