Pending approval by the Board of Education at the February 22 meeting, Kevin Dorken will become District 34’s Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources on July 1, 2021.
Mr. Dorken has been principal of Lyon School for 15 years. He has a long history with D34, having served in many different educational roles including classroom teacher, technology facilitator and principal. That educational experience, and his deep understanding of District 34 -- and his genuine care for teachers, staff and the children in our community -- make him the ideal person to lead our HR function.
Mr. Dorken will continue to support the teachers, students and families of Lyon until the end of the school year. The District will immediately begin the process to find the next Lyon principal.
