John Pearson RSS
  • Superintendent of East Alton - Wood River CHSD #14 since 2000
  • I've been a Charter Member of the HSDO since it formed in late 1990's by Leo Hefner (Belleville #201), Ken Hill (Nashville #99), Ken Maurer (Metamora), etc., when I worked at Freeburg #77. HSDO was formed primarily in response to the General Assembly dropping the high school weighting factor from General State Aid from 1.25 to 1.0, which hit high school districts particularly hard. So much for ancient history ...
I am hopeful that HSDO could have some sort of influence in the way that ISBE utilizes the new PARCC assessment coming down the road, perhaps in conjunction with the School Management Alliance. Obviously, we've been tired of getting beat up with the PSAE vs. ISAT comparisons by uninformed media, politicians, and parents.

Congrats HSDO on the Web site - great idea!!
