After hiring a principal at each of the middle schools this spring, D97 this month is poised to hire an assistant principal for both Brooks and Julian middle schools. The two candidates are internal hires. Faith Cole, a nine-year D97 teacher and Oak Park native, is slated to be the new assistant principal at Julian, 416 S. Ridgeland. Lindsay Pietrzak, a D97 language arts teacher, was hired for Brooks, 326 S. Kenilworth. The school board is scheduled to take action on the new hires on June 26.
