District 48 Is Celebrating It's 186th Year

Welcome to Salt Creek School District 48!  Our school district is celebrating 186 continuous years of service to the communities of Oakbrook Terrace, Elmhurst, Villa Park, and Oak Brook. Your continued support of our school district allows us to provide dynamic programs and services for our students, helping them to become lifelong learners. Tax rates for residential and commercial property are among the lowest in DuPage County thanks to our business and regional Oakbrook Center Mall properties.


Our rich history is unique to DuPage County where many districts have been consolidated into larger districts over the years. We are the one of the three smallest K-8 districts in DuPage County that offer a state-of-the-art curriculum, vast array of services, the latest student technology, with among the lowest class sizes in the county.


Our District Mission/Vision Statement, “The Salt Creek School District 48 community will promote the rigorous development of all of our students and inspire them to learn, grow, lead and succeed in a global society” provides our programming focus” drives every decision we make.


Our school district has been able to attract and retain a team of professional educators who are dedicated to the development of the whole child while at the same time addressing their unique special, social, emotional needs, and learning styles. The credentials of our teachers, services teachers, administrators are among the strongest in DuPage County and the State of Illinois. Our educational support staff have been with us for many years and support student instruction, school, and district offices.


I have enjoyed working in the district for the past 16 years as Director of Operations & Business Services/School District Services. During that time, I have seen our programs and services grow each year for our diverse student population while also maintaining financial stability. I look forward to returning to service as your interim superintendent this year.


I look forward to hearing from our parents and community members.
