KANKAKEE — A search firm to lead the way to finding the next superintendent of Kankakee School District 111 has been hired.

During a special meeting Monday at Kankakee High School, the school board voted to hire School Exec Connect, of Oak Park, after interviewing three firms it had narrowed down from seven that submitted proposals.

The firm’s consulting services cost $18,500, plus administrative costs of up to $2,750 and advertising costs which will depend on where the superintendent job posting is advertised.


Stephanie Markham joined the Daily Journal in February 2020 as the education reporter. She focuses on school boards as well as happenings and trends in local schools. She earned her B.A. in journalism from Eastern Illinois University.
