"It is very important for students to learn about technology earlier in their education," said Ken Hinton, Peoria School District 150 assistant superintendent for community programs."By the time these students reach college, the career field they will pursue is often decided by the courses that they chose in high school.One goal of this program is to spark students' interest earlier by making the application of technology a fun and exciting experience.Many of these students participating may be the first generation in their families to attend college.This program will open possibilities toward careers they may have never considered.
The summer camp portion of the program will be June 18 through 23.

District 150 superintendent Ken Hinton will retire effective Dec. 1, a source from district HQ on Wisconsin Avenue told me today.
He is expected to tell administrative staff during a meeting today.
My source did not know the reason for his decision to retire early. He previously was expected to stay with the district until the end of the school year, giving the district enough time to have a new superintendent in place by June 30, 2010. Hinton is in poor health, and this may have played a role in his decision.
...
Hinton was appointed superintendent in January 2005 to replace ousted Superintendent Kay Royster, who combative style alienated the board and much of the community.
...
UPDATE 3x: Via WMBD 31, here is Ken Hinton's email to the public (I never got it) about his imminent retirement. It is reprinted verbatim from the WMBD Website.
...
Hinton suffered a minor heart attack in March of 2006 and was out for three months in 2007 recovering from back surgery.

Ken Hinton filed a report alleging theft by this employee Peoria Police Department on Friday, my source tells me. He told the officer at the station that an independent audit of the activity fund would be done, and the credit card statements checked out.
At one point, a mention of McArdle's pending termination was on the District 150 Web site (possibly as an agenda item), my source said. The Web site to be down during the weekend.
I was able to confirm late Friday night - from a different source - that Hinton had been recently discussing firing a high-level administrator and that it would probably appear in the media on Monday, although it was discussed in terms of budget reductions. My source did not know the name of the administrator, and no mention was made of theft allegations.

District 150 Superintendent Ken Hinton once again displayed his lack of respect to taxpayers and parents. In an interview with the Journal Star, he said that, sure, he's meet with parents who are upset that 45 minutes has been cut from the school day. But he claimed that kids will benefit from all that wonderful extra planning time teachers will get, and that there's no way the district will change it's mind.
My reaction is: So why the Hell is Hinton meeting with parents?
...
Ken Hinton was dismissive of any opinion but his own, and board remained in his pocket.

When this individual left, the BOE created two deputy superintendent positions and these individuals served until Hinton received his alternative superintendent’s endorsement the summer of 2006 (a period of almost 2 years). The two deputy superintendents received a stipend on top of their regular administrative salary. In other words, in ‘04-’05, they paid 3 superintendent salaries through December, and then paid 4 superintendent salaries through June 30th. Subsequent to that date, they were paying 3 superintendent salaries until the summer of 2006. A very conservative estimate of the additional expense involved is $310K excluding the superintendent stipends paid to Fischer & Hannah, and excluding benefits. The BOE paid for Hinton to obtain his alternative superintendent’s endorsement at WIU, which was at least $5K.
...
While under contract to the search firm, the BOE decided to hire a retired former administrator (Hinton) causing the BOE to settle with the search firm for an amount of approximately one-half the original contract. That was an expenditure of approximately $40K to receive absolutely nothing.
Then there is Hinton’s “friends and family†hiring plan. Not only did the top-level administrators receive very generous raises, Hinton proceeded to hire many of his “friends and family members†(think his son Landrian Hinton, Otto Arcaute, Susan Grzanich, Charles Davis, Thom Simpson, Mary Ward, Sandra Burke and an administration building secretary, to name a few).
...
In the fall of ‘04, Hinton reinstated approximately 40 positions that had been eliminated due to attrition.
...
School Buildings: Hinton closed two middle schools, White & Blaine because he said they were unsafe for kids.
...
2. Approximately $310K was spent for multiple superintendents and to get Hinton legally qualified to hold the superintendency after he was contracted for the position.
...
After this excessive, sometimes frivolous spending by Hinton and the BOE, what do the taxpayers have?

During Superintendent Ken Hinton's longer-than-expected recover from back surgery, Hinton got the swell idea that this new school out to be located at White because then and only then could it be a magnet school and partner up with nearby OSF and Methodist medical center to offer educational programming.
...
Back when the district's plan to close Glen Oak an build a new school in Glen Oak Park collapsed, Hinton bitterly vowed that because East Bluff residents fought the district, that must mean the area must not really want a new school and don't really care for their children (which is far from the truth)Â and therefore they wouldn't get any school school, anywhere in the area.
...
I would suggest that if Hinton and some members of the school board are playing games in hopes of getting more, they better be aware that it's annual budget time at City Hall and no one is in the mood to be jacked around.
