After serving nearly 20 years in Mokena, Charles Vitton told the MSD159 Board of Education on April 17 that he was moving on to join outgoing Supt. Steve Stein at Peotone Community Unit School District 207U. His role there will be similar. His position specifically is director of curriculum and technology. He signed a three-year contract.
Stein said it's not unusual for administrators that work closely together to move on together. Speaking of Vitton, he said they have a good working relationship and their educational philosophy is in-sync.
"Change can be good," said Stein. This gives M159's incoming superintendent, Omar Castillo, a chance to hire staff that reflects his style and philosophy.
