Guy Gradert begins his new job as Unit 9 school superintendent July 1. The local school board approved his hiring to replace James Bunting.
Bunting elected to step aside and return to the principal’s job he once held at the Glenn Raymond School. The new positions for both administrators begin July 1 with the new fiscal year.
Gradert has served as superintendent of the Ridgeview Community Unit School District 19 since 2011.
