Lake Central High School announces new principal

From the ICYMI: Here are the most-read stories from the past week series

ST. JOHN — Erin Novak, an assistant principal at Lake Central High School, is succeeding Sean Begley as principal. 

Novak, who started at LCHS as an English teacher 18 years ago, was approved by the school board of trustees Monday. Since coming to LCHS, she also has served as a dean. 

"I'm very eager to start working," Novak said.

After wishing him well, Novak said Begley left big shoes for her to fill. But she said she is ready to take on the role and eager to start working with Lake Central families.

Monday's meeting included other personnel changes such as the addition of a department head for the counseling department. This person will be directly involved with teachers, counselors and students, said Director of Human Resources and Personnel Terry Mucha.

Mucha said a lot of people have been hired over the past couple of weeks, and there still are open positions in the district.

Most roles at the elementary school level are filled, but the district needs an assistant principal and a physical education teacher for just one period at Watson Elementary School. Clark Middle School needs English, science and special education teachers. The high school needs counselors, business teachers and English teachers.
