The Community Unit School District #4 Board of Education is proud to announce that Brian Kurz has been selected as the next superintendent of the Unit #4 District. Mr. Kurz will officially begin his duties as superintendent on July 1, 2013, but will spend some time over the next several months working with the Board, administration and staff to ensure a smooth transition. Kurz accepted a three-year contract at a total package of $120,000 for the first year.
Mr. Kurz is currently Director of Instruction at El Paso Gridley CUSD #11 in El Paso where he has also served as a principal and a teacher. He began his teaching career in the Bloomington Public School District #87 in 2002.
Earning an Ed. S. in Educational Administration from Eastern Illinois University in 2009, Kurz has extensive knowledge of Common Core State Standards and curriculum alignment, and has been trained by the Danielson Group as a trainer on the state’s new teacher evaluation system. He also has assisted in the implementation of a 1:1 program this year at El Paso Gridley.
Kurz and his family, wife Katie and children Hannah, 5, and Luke, 6 months, are excited about coming to the Unit #4:
“ I want to work in a district that is passionate about providing the best educational opportunities for students even in the midst of difficult financial times. The positive reputation that Unit #4 has earned is very obvious through discussion with administrators around the state. The focus on 1:1 at the high school now and middle school in the future is very enticing to me, both as an educator, and as a parent.”
