Superintendent’s Message

Interim Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Von Mansfield

Greetings Everyone,

Happy New Year and welcome back! As we return from the winter break, we look forward to the possibilities the New Year brings. I am honored to have been selected to serve the district as Interim Superintendent. I appreciate the warm welcome that I have received thus far from the students, staff, community, and Board of Education. As the semester progresses I am eager to build positive relationships and remain committed to the success of our school district. In the short amount of time that I have been here, it is clear that we have a collaborative team of educators and staff, who provide the best educational opportunities for all Hazel Crest School District 152.5 students. This second semester will bring remarkable accomplishments and excellent opportunities for all students due to the efforts of a talented and dedicated faculty who teach, lead, and enhance the lives of our students each and every day. 

In addition to our team of accomplished and exemplary leaders, a variety of programming and resources are available to all students. Should your student need assistance at any time, I encourage you to reach out to their teachers.  We also have excellent counselors, psychologists, social workers, and administrators to meet your request as well. 

The high expectation of ALL students succeeding while attending Hazel Crest District 152.5 schools and for their continued success once they leave our schools remains our focus and priority.

Lastly, we will continue to cultivate and refine a strong school, home, and community partnership which is paramount to the success of each and every student. The mission outlined in the district’s strategic plan remains intact, strong and purposeful, “Empower students to follow their unique path to greatness by maximizing achievement and growth.”
