When the new school years begins in August in Oswego, it won’t just be the kindergartners who have a lot of new faces and names to learn.

Assistant Superintendent for Business and Finance Tim Neubauer has tendered his resignation, making him the third assistant superintendent in the Oswego School District to resign — as has the superintendent.

Come August, two full levels of the school district’s organizational chart will be filled with new personnel, but School Board President Bill Walsh said the high turnover won’t upset the day-to-day operation of the district.

“I think we have a great infrastructure of building administrators, teachers and staff,” Walsh said Wednesday. “So while change is difficult, everyone will still be focused on doing what’s best for the kids and focused on teaching and improving the academics of the district, which is what everybody is here for.”

Neubauer’s resignation was received by the School Board this week after Barrington Community Unit School District announced it would be hiring Neubauer as its assistant superintendent for business services. Neubauer is slated to begin his new position with Barrington on July 1.

Neubauer has been Oswego’s top business and financial administrator since 2009. He was hired by Superintendent Dan O’Donnell, who joined the Oswego School District that year. O’Donnell announced his own resignation in February.
