    The board approved the superintendent employment contract for Steve Olson

    proven to us that he’s focused on a student centered approach, strengthening
    community partnerships, and communicating openly and honestly.”

    guidance counselor. He began his career as a Crystal Lake South High School
    social studies teacher. He has lived in the Crystal Lake community for the past 33
    years. Three of his children have graduated from Crystal Lake Central High
    School; his youngest daughter will graduated from Central in May.
    “I am committed to working with our staff, students, parents, and community to
    improve outcomes for all students in District 155. As a parent and district leader,
    I am proud to be part of a community that values the education we provide,”
    said Steve Olson, superintendent.

    Wisconsin-LaCrosse, a master’s in guidance and counseling and an Illinois
