Check up on what has been happening in our district.
The West Aurora School Board has begun an internal search for a new Superintendent of Schools to replace Dr. Jeff Craig when he retires in June of 2024. The firm hazard, Young, Attea, & Associates has been selected to lead the search of his successor.
Superintendent Craig invites you to view his 2022 State of the District Address, where school board members and district leaders reflect on recent achievements and share their vision for 2022 and beyond. This year's new format includes staff and student celebrations as well as special appearances by middle and high school students.
