LaSalle Budget, CIWP and Principal Transition Timeline

Good afternoon LaSalle community,

I have been honored to lead this community for the past three years and am exceptionally proud of the great work our staff has accomplished that has led to the rising academic and behavioral data we have seen over the past several months. You have heard me express my eagerness to complete the year and aid in the principal transition over the summer.

However, in response to an offer from CPS Central Office, I am writing inform you of a change in my timeline. I am excited to have been offered an opportunity to serve Central Office as a Citywide Principal, supporting multiple principals throughout the district in their work at their schools. While I am sad to leave LaSalle and especially the exceptional staff I have worked with in my time here, I will be transitioning to my new position in two weeks. My final day at LaSalle will be Friday, April 27th.

Over the next two weeks, I will be completing our school budget, CIWP, and multiple teacher observations. I am thankful that CPS budgets will be released tomorrow, as I want to ensure our financial situation positions us well for our continued work. Our CIWP is almost completed, as it is work our teachers and staff have been engaged in for many months. Teachers observations are always best completed by the leader who knows the teacher well, so I am happy to be able to complete those myself while I am still here.

Over the next two weeks, Chief Klee will work to identify an Administrator in Charge, to complete the year as LaSalle school leader until the LSC is able to choose a contract principal.

Please understand that turning around the budget, completing the CIWP and finishing teacher observations will take all of my time over the next two weeks and I am unlikely to be able to attend to any other business. Please send any emails you might have typically sent to me directly to Ms. Sierra and Ms. Soria, and they will ensure your inquiry is routed appropriately.

Thank you again for the wonderful experience I have had at this school and continue to support your hard working staff.
