The District 64 Board of Education voted to appoint Elisa Leporini as the new Assistant Director of Student Services, effective July 1st. Leporini is already very familiar with D64 and the program because she has served as a Special Education Coordinator in D64 since 2020.
Prior to accepting her current position, Ms. Leporini was the Assistant Director of Student Services in East Aurora District 131 for three years. From 2014 through 2017, Ms. Leporini served as the Assistant Principal at Madison School in Morton Grove District 69. Before moving to administration, Ms. Leporini worked as an Early Childhood Case Coordinator/Social Worker for four years in District 69.
“We are very excited for her to become our next assistant director,” said Dr. Olson. “Elisa has assistant principal experience, so she has that building knowledge, but she also has previously been an assistant director. As we went through the interview process, she was the clear favorite of everybody involved."
Ms. Leporini was selected from a pool of 38 applicants. Following a thorough screening process, five candidates were interviewed by an administrative committee consisting of district office and building administrators. Two candidates were then brought back and interviewed before a committee comprised of district office administrators and staff members representing all facets within the District's Student Services Department.
