Superintendent for Illinois State University Laboratory Schools Jeffrey Hill has accepted a position as superintendent for Morton Community School District 709 beginning July 1, 2017.

Hill has served the Laboratory Schools since 2005, first as University High School principal and for the last five years as superintendent of the Laboratory Schools.  Under his leadership the Lab Schools have implemented one-to-one learning, standards-based grading, and have had multiple national rankings in various publications.

“I am very excited to serve as the next superintendent for Morton District 709, and look forward to helping students and teachers continue to excel,” said Hill. “I count myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the Lab School community and for Illinois State University these past 12 years. I had the privilege of working with highly skilled educators, supportive parents, and outstanding students. I am certain the Lab Schools will continue their success due to the dedication and diligence of the Lab School community and the support of Illinois State University.”

Dean of the College of Education Al Azinger will begin consideration for an interim replacement for Hill.
