West Carroll school superintendent under fire

Julie Katzenberger on leave through Wednesday, when union will discuss its discontent with school board

Julie Katzenberger, superintendent for West Carroll Community Unit District 314, had to fill teaching vacancies of more than 10% of her staff over the summer, most due to retirements. She said there was a shortage of available candidates.

The West Carroll Education Association took a vote of no confidence in Superintendent Katzenberger nearly two weeks ago. That vote passed with an overwhelming majority.”
