When Arne Duncan was named the Chicago Public Schools’ chief executive officer in June 2001, aside from naming McCosh Elementary principal Barbara Eason-Watkins as his chief education officer, he left the senior-level staff that made up predecessor Paul Vallas’ administration virtually intact.
Now, two years later, many of the names from the Vallas era are gone, replaced by new faces that bear Duncan’s own stamp. (See Catalyst, June 2003).
Catalyst has produced an organizational chart that highlights Duncan’s administrative lineup. Links to biographical information for each staff member are included. (NOTE: Chart updated 9/11/03)
Catalyst interns Thaddeus P. Hartmann and Elizabeth Doak compiled the information for the chart.
