The District 200 School Board has tapped an administrator from Evanston Township High School to become the new assistant principal for instruction at Oak Park and River Forest High School.
Chala (Shay-la) Holland was hired Tuesday by the OPRF board. She officially starts July 1, at a salary of $118,000. She's currently director of academic support and summer school principal for Evanston Township, according to the school's website.
The assistant principal for instruction is a new position within OPRF's building leadership, part of an overall administration reorganization. Holland will oversee all matters of instruction, as well as department chairs. She'll report directly to Principal Nathaniel Rouse.
Rouse was not reachable by phone Tuesday afternoon.
Wednesday Journal will have additional coverage in next week's paper.
