DANVILLE - After nearly two years at Northeast Elementary Magnet School's helm, Kathy Houpt has something new on her plate.

Houpt, Northeast's principal since August 2006, recently took over as director of secondary education, a new position created under a $1 million restructuring plan to boost instruction and student achievement at Danville High School.
Her new duties are aligning the school's curriculum and instruction with Illinois learning standards and state tests and developing on-going professional development opportunities for staff.
"I love it!" said Houpt, who has been at her post the past two weeks. "I love a challenge, and this is certainly is a challenge."
Danville school board members approved Houpt's appointment in late April. They also tapped DeMarko Wright - an administrative intern who becomes Garfield Elementary School's principal in August - to lead balanced-calendar Northeast through the end of its school year on June 4.
Superintendent Nanette Mellen said Houpt is working under her current 205-day contract, but the district will pay her for a few additional days at her current rate.

Kathy Houpt, formerly principal of the Northeast Elementary Magnet School, is the new director of secondary education for Danville High School.
...
As the restructuring committee developed the plan and discussed the need for the new position, Mellen and others thought Houpt was the ideal candidate.
...
"Everything that's been important to her in her education and career is what she'll be addressing," Mellen said, pointing out Houpt earned her doctorate in education a year ago.
...
Houpt taught middle school in Danville for 10 years, then left to work for textbook publisher Harcourt for 19 years. She did several things at the company, including curriculum development, which required her to study K-12 curriculum and provide professional development with teachers throughout the country.
Houpt eventually returned to Danville as the district's curriculum coordinator, which she did for 1½ years. Then she served as North Ridge Middle School's assistant principal for a year, before moving to Northeast.
"Taking this job was easy," Houpt said. "Leaving (Northeast) was the hard part. I miss the kids so much ... and the staff and parents. I really got to know a lot of the parents, and I'll miss the opportunity to work with them."
Mellen said it was important for Houpt to begin her new assignment immediately.
...
"Those teachers will really get to know the students and be able to support them," Houpt said, adding each teaching team will share a planning period to plan integrated units and talk about student needs.
Mellen said Houpt has already realigned the ninth-grade math curriculum.
...
Once scheduling is addressed, Houpt will turn her attention to professional development, which will kick off this summer. Freshmen House teachers' training will be geared toward team teaching.
"For the district as a whole, one of the things we want to focus on is reading across the curriculum," Houpt said, adding that's designed to help students improve their reading and critical thinking skills.\
