Todd Fitzgerald has been an incredible principal for District 97 for the past eight years. I want to thank him for his hard work, professionalism, and significant contributions to the growth and success of Julian Middle School. Although we are sad to see him go, I am proud that one of our district leaders has the opportunity to take on a superintendency. We wish him nothing but the best as he begins this new chapter in his career.
In terms of our plans for finding Todd’s replacement, those efforts will begin immediately and will include a discussion of how best to engage Julian students, staff and families in the process. We will keep everyone updated on the status of our efforts.
