• District 214's Schuler

    named 2018 Illinois

    Superintendent of the Year


    Dr. David R. Schuler of High School District 214 has been named the 2018 Illinois Superintendent of the Year by IASA. The award was presented Saturday (November 18) during the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago. Nominees are judged on Leadership for Learning, Communication, Professionalism and Community Involvement.

    "What an incredibly humbling experience to be recognized by my peers throughout Illinois. The credit truly goes to the students, staff and the extremely supportive school board of High School District 214," said Schuler, who oversees the state's second-largest high school district with more than 12,000 students at six high schools and four specialized learning programs in the northwest suburbs of Cook County. The district includes Buffalo Grove HS, Elk Grove HS, John Hersey HS, Prospect HS, Rolling Meadows HS and Wheeling HS. "High School District 214 is a microcosm of the country. I am truly fortunate to work, hands down, in the best school district in the country.

    "We provide tremendous opportunities for our students. I am continually amazed that when adults from the community walk through our schools they say that they wish could go back and do high school again because what we are providing our students today is so radically different than what many adults experienced when they were in high school."
