Community Unit District 300 has tapped Hampshire High School Principal Chuck Bumbales to see it through a series of upcoming projects.
Bumbales in July will return to the position of assistant superintendent of operations, which he held from 2004 to 2008. But many of his operations duties will begin right away, according to a news release from the district. District 300 Superintendent Michael Bregy said Bumbales will be a good fit for the short- and long-term facility planning on the horizon.
"He knows our community. He knows our schools. He knows our systems. We wish we did not have to ask him to leave Hampshire but he is quite literally the perfect person for this difficult job," Bregy said in the news release.
