On June 15, 2020, the Board of Education named District 101 Instructional Coach Laura Broadnax as McClure's Assistant Principal, effective July 1.
Prior to becoming one of D101's original Instructional Coaches when the positions were created in 2015, Mrs. Broadnax was a highly respected science teacher, team leader, and athletic coach at McClure for fourteen years. Mrs. Broadnax is a graduate of John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio, received a Master's Degree from National Louis University, and achieved National Board Certification in 2018.
The Board also announced their intention to conduct a full search for McClure Principal Dan Chick's successor, including representative interview committees of staff, parents, administration, and students in early-December. Three years ago, Mr. Chick announced his intention to retire at the end of the upcoming 2020-21 school year and we look forward to celebrating him in his 30th, and final, year at McClure.
