Calling for the Termination or Resignation of School District 86 Superintendent Bruce Law

This petition had 381 supporters

As residents of the district 86, we are demanding the immediate termination of employment or resignation of district superintendent Dr. Bruce Law. As the superintendent of district 86, Dr. Law failed to demonstrate his ability to lead, set a clear vision, and unite the communities of the district to confront the challenges the district is facing.

Dr. Law failed to identify and communicate the real issues. After considerable amount of efforts and resources were spent on pinpointing the underlying issues, it is still not clear to the community whether the main issue is “Overcrowding in Hinsdale Central”, or “Enrollment issue between Hinsdale Central and Hinsdale South”, or “Aging school facilities need repair and improvement”? His failure to identify and articulate problem led to confusion, speculation, and misguided resolutions. Furthermore, this diverts resources and attention from real issues our community should be focusing on.

Instead of communicating the real issues, disclosing the root cause of unbalanced attendance among our schools, and rallying all the support from the entire district community to address the issues, Dr. Law repeatedly advocated boundary change as the “fastest and cheapest” option, causing division, fear and chaos among our communities, families and students. His approach is turning neighborhood against neighborhood while leaving our school facilities’ needs unattended.

Our school infrastructure is old and outdated. They need repair and improvement to keep up with the needs of the 21st century. Hinsdale South and it’s feeder schools have seen steady decline in enrollment in the past 7 years. Dr. Law did not address these critical issues in the past, nor is he on the right path to address them in the future.

We need to move on. Our community needs a superintendent who can lead with integrity and clear vision, a leader who can unite, not divide. We need someone who can focus on the real issue and get things done. Most of all, our students deserve a superintendent who values their wellbeing more than anything else.
