HUNTLEY District 158 Superintendent ..., 18 Nov 2013 [cached]
HUNTLEY District 158 Superintendent John Burkey had the TV ready for the Chicago Bears game Sunday, when he first saw news that a tornado ripped through his hometown of Washington.
Burkey immediately felt shock as he learned that the tornado, with winds between 170 and 190 miles per hour, destroyed Washington neighborhoods nearly a mile away from his old house in the Tazewell County community, near Peoria.
In the moments that followed, Burkey called and texted friends from his Washington Community High School days to learn that some had their homes destroyed or damaged. None of his friends were severely injured.
"It destroyed whole neighborhoods in Washington," Burkey said.
Burkey, who no longer has family in Washington, said he has already donated to the numerous relief organizations assisting residents affected by the tornado.
He moved from Peoria to Washington during middle school, graduated high school there and often returned during breaks as an undergraduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
He permanently returned to the area in the late 1990s to work as a principal for Dunlap Middle School near Peoria.
He later would become an assistant superintendent at the Dunlap school district before moving to Huntley in 2006 to become District 158's top administrator.
Burkey said he plans to keep in touch with friends from Washington, as residents there begin the long recovery effort.
"Tornadoes touched a lot of communities in the state," he said.

In Huntley, District 158 worked to incorporate the depth and critical-thinking skills required by the Common Core into its curriculum before schools across the state had to officially shift toward the standards, Superintendent John Burkey said.
The district's ongoing digital rollout that has put tablets and laptops in the hands of elementary and middle school students specifically addresses the "personalized learning" contained in the Common Core, he said.
"In a nutshell, the Common Core is more about students demonstrating how they use knowledge than it is about knowledge itself," Burkey said. "For the most part, we are doing a pretty good job at teaching that in District 158. ...

Burkey, John wrote:
While Burkey writes how he "cannot," there is no legal prohibition preventing Burkey from providing the information because it is not a public document.
It is a decision on Burkey's part how he "won't."
Some superintendents choose to be uncooperative, as Burkey has, while insisting that residents and parents be cooperative.
