New assistant superintendent joins D-44

LOMBARD – The District 44 Board of Education welcomed a new assistant superintendent of finance and operations this month.

Ted Stec has 12 years of experience, including service at Burbank School District 11 and Argo High School District 217. He earned a marketing degree from Miami University and a master's in education from Roosevelt University and Type 75 from Lewis University.

One of Stec's projects prior to joining Dist. 44 raised a half million dollars to complete a "green initiative" which resulted in saving about 30 percent on energy costs, according to a Lombard Elementary District 44 news release. The project also was used to educate students on the importance of caring for the environment through energy conservation.
