Just two weeks after the Oak Park and River Forest High School District 200 Board of Education unanimously voted to hire a new director of campus security, that person has resigned. 

At a special meeting on July 12, the board voted to hire John Robinson to replace former security head Randy Braverman, who resigned last year. Robinson would have made $91,000, which had been pro-rated from the start of the 2018-19 school year. 

On July 25, however, Robinson withdrew the offer "because of an unexpected personal situation that arose," said Karin Sullivan, D200's communications director.

At that July 12 meeting, the school board also unanimously hired a communications specialist, a new position created this year within the communications department. 

Jaclyn McGoey was hired at $47,000, a salary that was also pro-rated from her July 30 start date. McGoey is the former director of social media strategy and communications at Wednesday Journal.
