District 225 Superintendent Mike Riggle has announced his intention to step down from his leadership position and retire from the District during the 2018 - 2019 school year.
“I feel privileged to have served in this outstanding district for the last 20 years,” said Superintendent Dr. Riggle. “With the completion of multi-year bargaining agreements with the employee unions, it is an excellent time for the Board of Education to seek a highly qualified candidate to serve as the next superintendent. I will continue to manage the important business of the District until a new superintendent is selected and a smooth transition is realized.”
Riggle came to the Glenbrooks in July 1998 as the newly appointed principal of Glenbrook North High School and has served as superintendent of the District since July 1, 2008. Prior to his time in the Glenbrooks, Riggle served for eight years as the principal of Bloomington High School South in Bloomington, Indiana.
“The Board wishes to thank Dr. Riggle for his exemplary 20 years of service to the Glenbrook High Schools,” said Board President Skip Shein. “During his tenure, the District has witnessed unprecedented growth in student achievement, employee satisfaction and financial stability. Mike has worked tirelessly to deepen critical relationships with our feeder elementary districts, park districts, religious and cultural organizations, and the villages of Glenview and Northbrook. Mike consistently demonstrates the highest level of personal integrity, always leading by example. Mike’s experience, thoughtfulness and steady hand will be difficult to replace. The Board wishes Dr. Riggle and his family well as they move forward together into the next phase of their journey.”
