At a Special Board meeting on March 31, 2014, the Frankfort School District 157-C Board of Education unanimously approved a 3-year contract with Dr. Maura J. Zinni to serve as the new Superintendent of Schools effective July 1, 2014.
"Dr. Zinni will be a strong and visionary instructional leader, an engaging and visible member of the community, an effective communicator, a steward of the taxpayer's funds, and someone who will respect our traditions while continuing to move forward as we serve each and every child in Frankfort," said Board President Christopher R. McFadden as he introduced Dr. Zinni to the audience. The Board selected Dr. Zinni after interviewing eight of the most promising applicants for this position.
A nationally recognized executive leadership search firm, BWP & Associates, assisted the Board with the initial evaluation of approximately four dozen candidates from around the United States. The process included gathering input from families, the district staff, and the community through a focus group, an online survey, and individual meetings.
