Mr. Craig Benes, Superintendent, Itasca 10
It has been an honor to serve the Itasca School District for the last six years as Superintendent. I am thankful to continue that as the Board of Education recently renewed my contract. I look forward to leading and fulfilling critical new improvements for our students and families. The district will strive to return to a better normal while we begin a new stage of Curricular Renewal, Capital & Safety Improvements and Expanded Student Services. Before joining District 10, I served in the Chicago Public Schools for 16 years as a Teacher, Administrative Fellow, Assistant Principal, Principal and Area Chief of Schools. As a senior administrator, I supervised a network of approximately 30 schools. Prior to education, I worked in the social service sector for over 12 years with children and families. I have earned advanced degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy, Special Education-Teaching, Administration and Supervision and Educational Leadership-Superintendent. I enjoy running, swimming and triathlons. My wife Audrey, who is a kindergarten teacher with CPS and I also enjoy watching our three college aged children compete in cross country and track.
