District 159 Director of Businress Operations Kirt Hendrick has resigned, after just more than a year on the job.
Hendrick's resignation takes effect at the end of July.
"Due to personal and professional reasons I have submitted my resignation as the Director of Business Operations," Hendrick wrote in a press release. "It was a privilege to serve the Mokena 159 students and community as a member of staff and administrators."
Hendrick announced his resignation during a special board meeting July 11. Board members Scott Peters and Mike Ford were dismayed at the news, but wished Hendrick the best in his future.
District Superintendent Steve Stein said that Hendrick did not resign to take another position.
The board later went into closed session to discuss posting the Director of Business Operations job and what the district would be looking for from candidates.
