District 74 Approves New Superintendent
At its regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting on Thursday, February 7, 2013, the Lincolnwood District #74 Board of Education approved the hiring of Dr. Joseph F. Bailey as its Superintendent of Schools.
Dr. Bailey will officially start a three-year contract with the district on July 1, 2013. Currently, Dr. Bailey is completing his 10th year as Superintendent of Schools, in Medinah School District #11, which is located in north Dupage County.
“We are excited to have Dr. Bailey on board,” stated Mr. Scott Anderson, President of Lincolnwood #74’s Board of Education, “We believe Dr. Bailey’s skills and experiences closely align with our district’s needs and expectations.” The Board of Education, through the use of a search firm, did an exhaustive search for District 74’s next Superintendent with screening of 49 candidates from Illinois and the Midwest. Mr. Anderson also stated, “Since the fall, the Board of Education has been engaged in the search process for our next Superintendent. As President of the Board, I am proud of the effort that this Board put into the search. We spent a lot of hours together interviewing candidates, discussing candidates, reaching a consensus about who we think will be the best leader for our District, and establishing goals for that leader. Your Board has reached this consensus and with careful consideration of what this District needs at this critical time in its history.”
“I have enjoyed my time in Medinah #11 very much and will dearly miss those with whom I’ve worked on the Board, in the schools and throughout the community,” stated Bailey, “but I am also very excited and honored by the opportunity to serve Lincolnwood #74 as its new Superintendent of Schools!”
District 74 will host a brief community reception at 4:30 PM on February 12, 2013 at the Todd Hall Learning Center. Although there will be no formal program, all community members are invited to this opportunity to meet District 74’s next leader.

One of the initial steps taken by the Board of Education in its process of selecting a new superintendent was to solicit information from all of the district's stake holders. Not only did the Board's search consultant, BWP, hold face-to-face meetings with staff, PTA and community members regarding the district and characteristics needed for the next superintendent, they also put a survey online to solicit information from anyone living in or involved with Lincolnwood District 74.
