2020-21 Superintendent Search Process Update

  • Lake Park's Board of Education is faced with the important task of hiring a new superintendent for the 2020-21 school year to replace current Lake Park Superintendent Dr. Lynn Panega who will retire on June 30, 2020.

    To assist with this endeavor, a search firm specializing in assisting Boards of Education in their search for a new superintendent was hired. School Exec Connect recommended conducting an audit of District 108's strengths, challenges and goals, as well as determining the attributes necessary for a new superintendent to possess to be successful at Lake Park.

    Earlier this fall, the Board of Education invited staff and community members to participate in focus groups, attend an open forum, and respond to an online survey to assist in the development of a leadership profile for the new superintendent search process. All survey responses were anonymous and confidential. Thank you to everyone who participated and responded! Please access the Superintendent Profile here

    Following an extensive interview process in the coming months, the Board of Education anticipates naming the new superintendent during a special open Board meeting in January 2020.
