District 153 superintendent announces retirement, board hires business manager

The District 153 school board accepted with regret the announcement from Superintendent Scott McAlister that he will be retiring in June 2026. 

“Obviously not an easy decision for me, but I will have been in education for 34 years,” he said as he went through the district’s Personnel Report at its meeting Monday, March 13.

McAlister stepped into his role as superintendent in 2021 after serving a year as assistant superintendent with outgoing superintendent Dale Mitchell.  At the time, the board gave him a contract that extends through June 2026.
