District 24 board approves new deal for Fale
(Page 2 of 2)
Andrew Hackmack/Herald
Dr. Edward Fale, superintendent of District 24 since 1998, will retire on Dec. 31, then return two days later under a new contract.

If he plans to leave the district before his contract is up, Fale must give the board 180 days notice.

“It’s a wonderful situation for all around,” said board President Paul DePace, who said Fale would see an increase in take-home pay, and the district would save money each year. “It think it’s a win-win for both sides.”

The savings in salary and benefits, DePace said, can be used to offset other expected increases in the budget.

DePace said the deal also gives the district continued stability in its administration, and gives the board time to prepare for the eventual transition to a new superintendent. Fale has been with District 24 since July 1, 1998.

Assistant Superintendent Dan Onorato will serve as interim superintendent on Jan. 1.
