D103 Welcomes Two Administrators

Craig Chatham
Please welcome Craig Chatham, Ed.D., our new Director of Technology and Assessment, to District 103. Dr. Chatham has most recently worked in Zion District 6 as the Instructional Technology Facilitator. Dr. Chatham was selected due to his strong knowledge and abilities in educational technology and his strong commitment to helping students grow. He has been working alongside our technology team to learn about our district and operations. Dr. Chatham replaces RJ Bialk who is leaving to become the Executive Director of Technology in Elmhurst Community Unit D205. We want to thank Mr. Bialk for his excellent work and service to District 103!

Of his position, Dr. Chatham said, “The opportunity to work for, collaborate with, and serve the students, staff, and community of Lincolnshire-Prairie View D103 is truly an honor. Every interaction I’ve had with a D103 staff member or family has spoken to a culture that is welcoming, supportive, and promotes learning. I’m thrilled to join the D103 family!”
