Oak Park and River Forest High School has hired John Carlson as its interim director of human resources for the 2013-2014 school year. Carlson has been an administrator at Elgin High School, Niles North High School and Niles Township High School. Since his retirement in 2005, he has served as interim HR director for school districts in Hinsdale, Elmhurst and Glen Ellyn. His teaching career began in 1966 at Larkin High School in Elgin, and from 2000-2005 he served as assistant superintendent for personnel services for Lake Park High School District 108 in Roselle.
Carlson was hired by OPRF last week. Spokesperson Karin Sullivan said the high school plans to hire a second interim HR director who will split duties with Carlson.
