District 116 Superintendent Constance Collins said officials are moving to find someone to fill what will be called an interim principal's position at Round Lake High. Collins said the district doesn't have enough time for its standard process to hire a principal, so the new hire will be considered temporary for the upcoming school year.

Collins said she expects Round Lake High's interim principal to be in place when classes at the 1,945-student school begin Aug. 21.

"We are in the interview process," she said Thursday.

Daniel Tenuta, assistant superintendent of secondary schools at Kenosha Unified District No. 1, said Sinclair was hired Tuesday to become principal at the city's 1,700-student Bradford High School. He said Sinclair topped six finalists to replace outgoing Principal Susan Savaglio-Jarvis, who was promoted to a districtwide administrative job.

Tenuta said Sinclair lives in Kenosha and previously worked in the city's school system before joining District 116 in 2007. Sinclair also is a former Kenosha alderman, Tenuta said.

Collins said while she didn't expect Sinclair's resignation so close to the new school year, she understands why he wants to work in Kenosha. She said Sinclair is a Bradford graduate and his children attend the school.

Sinclair couldn't be reached for comment.
