LBES Leadership 2013-14
LBES Principal Search Update

Focus groups groups and surveys to help determine the LBES principal profile will begin in October.

The search is being led by Dr. Ben Martindale, who also led the search that resulted in the hiring of Dr. Sophie as Superintendent.  Because of this previous work with the District, Dr. Martindale knows the schools and the staff, and already has strong connections to the community.  Under his direction, the entire firm will be putting its network of national contacts to work recruiting for us. 

After Dr. Martindale retired as Superintendent of Gurnee School District 56, he was called on by the State of Illinois to guide a turnaround of the financially-troubled Round Lake schools, and is now assisting the state in bringing about changes in the North Chicago schools.

Parents and community members are asked to take a brief online survey about what they believe are important characteristics for the new Lake Bluff Elementary School principal, for which a search is now ongoing.  The survey will be available online through October 31.  Click HERE for the survey.
