Two top administrators at Proviso Township High Schools District 209 have resigned recently.
District officials confirmed this week that Dr. Kim Waller-Echols, the district’s assistant superintendent of human resources, and Todd Drafall, the district’s chief financial officer, have both submitted letters of resignation.
Waller-Echols will resign to take a position at another school district in Illinois, D209 spokesperson Cynthia Moreno said.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Waller-Echols came to the district in 2011 and worked two years as principal of Proviso Math and Science Academy before becoming assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction from 2013 until 2016, when she was promoted to her current position.
Waller-Echols, whose resignation is effective July 1, is likely to be replaced by Dr. Anthony Brazouski, whose formal position will be assistant superintendent of human resources, safety and athletics.
Brazouski’s employment still needs to be approved by the D209 school board and financial oversight panel before a contract is legally binding. He could earn a starting compensation package of $160,000.
Brazouski comes to D209 from various school districts in Wisconsin, where he has worked as a chief academic officer, chief executive officer and executive director of academic achievement. The board could vote to approve his employment at a regular meeting on April 10.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Drafall has been D209’s chief financial officer since 2013. He’s been an adjunct professor at Concordia University Chicago since 2015.
The district accepted Drafall’s resignation letter, which is also effective July 1, Moreno said, adding that the position has already been posted on job boards.
