The Community High School District 155 Board appointed a new assistant superintendent of human resources Tuesday.

Jay Sargeant – who has worked in the district for 28 years in various roles – will start his new job July 1, according to a news release from the district.

He will be replacing Tom Kim, who was in the position for less than a year. Kim is starting a new job in July as the assistant superintendent of human resources at Niles Township High Schools District 219.

Sargeant has taught math at Prairie Ridge High School for the past year and coached baseball and basketball. Before that, he spent 17 years in administrative roles, including Cary-Grove principal, Crystal Lake Central principal and Crystal Lake South dean.

“Our greatest resource is our truly phenomenal staff,” Sargeant said. “Every day, they make positive changes and improve the quality of education and high school experiences for our students. I’m excited about providing highly effective services for D-155 personnel while aspiring to recruit, train and retain a world-class staff.”

His contract is pending attorney review, District 155 spokeswoman Shannon Podzimek said.
