Four months after being named Mundelein High School's interim principal, Anthony Kroll is dropping the "interim" from his title.
Kroll, who's spent his entire educational career at Mundelein High, has been awarded a three-year contract to lead the school.
He'll be paid $160,000 a year, retroactively effective July 1.
The school board voted this week to name Kroll principal.
"The board of education feels that Dr. Kroll's experience at Mundelein High School and his commitment to our students and community will greatly enhance our program," board President Karen Havlik told the Daily Herald in an emailed statement.
In a news release, Kroll said he was honored by the offer.
"The faculty and staff at MHS provide a rigorous academic preparation for our students and a rich extracurricular program," he said. "My goal is to facilitate and support the necessary components for them to do what they do best."
Kroll joined the Mundelein High staff as a chemistry teacher in 1993. He went on to serve as a dean, a department subject specialist and the school's director of curriculum and instruction.
He was named Mundelein's interim principal after Lauren Fagel resigned in June.
"(Kroll) will provide continuity, support and leadership as we move forward in our goal to provide a quality educational experience to all students," Havlik added.
