Steven Isoye is wrapping up his second year as superintendent of Oak Park and River Forest High School this summer. Hired in spring 2010 and officially starting in July of that year, Isoye was highly-regarded when he took over at OPRF. But another high school official fears he won't be sticking around for too long.
That person is school board President Terry Finnegan. Such a view might raise alarms that the board president and his fellow members aren't happy with the superintendent's performance. But according to Finnegan, it's the exact opposite.
In a Wednesday Journal interview earlier this spring with the newly-elected president Finnegan, he said he's very pleased with Isoye's performance and his professional style. Finnegan views Isoye as an education star who will receive high interest from other school districts looking to woo him away from Oak Park.
In the meantime, Isoye and the board have a full plate agenda, including strategic planning sometime this fall.
