Dear District 157-C Family and Community Members,

It is a real privilege to be your new superintendent! I am very proud to be part of this high-achieving, progressive district that always honors its history and puts the children first. I am excited to use what I have learned through my past experience and education to continue to build upon District 157-C’s “Tradition of Excellence.”

In joining our leadership team, I have outlined several goals that will enable me to quickly and effectively listen to and learn from a wide range of stakeholders directly involved with the district’s vision for educational excellence. I plan to accomplish these goals by working closely with the Board of Education, administrators and staff, conducting “listening and learning” tours and feedback sessions, reviewing data and documents, visiting schools and departments, as well as reaching out to our school families and the Frankfort community which are so vital to the success of our students.

As your new Superintendent, my detailed entry plan includes the following goals:

1. School Board Relations: To develop a strong collaborative relationship with the School Board built on mutual respect and trust.

2. Understanding Frankfort School District 157-C: To become familiar with the people, programs and partnerships that represent the Frankfort School District community.

3. Focus on Continuous Improvement: To increase district effectiveness and efficiency while ensuring continued high performance and support to schools.

We will continue to keep an open line of communication with you through this website, our online newsletters and e-blasts, quarterly mailed newsletters, press releases to the local newspapers and in person at our school events. I have already had the pleasure of meeting with our excellent school administrators and staff and I look forward to meeting our student families and community members. In the meantime, if you ever have a question or concern, please feel free to contact me at my office.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your new superintendent. I am really looking forward to a great school year for our students, schools and community!


Dr. Maura Zinni District 157-C Superintendent of Schools
