The principal at Evanston’s Lincoln Elementary School, Michelle Cooney, sent an email to parents of students at the school Wednesday morning announcing that she’s resigning.
Cooney says she’s leaving to become principal of The Skokie School in Winnetka District 36.
In addition, she says, Lincoln’s assistant principal, Luke Larmee, is leaving for a job as assistant principal for student services at Pleasant Ridge School in Glenview School District 34.
District 65 is already looking to fill three other principal jobs for the fall — at Dewey Elementary School, the Rice Children’s Center and the planned new Fifth Ward school.
In addition, a new principal for Lincolnwood Elementary School, Laura Pinsof, and a new principal for King Arts School, Rebecca Calloway, have been chosen to start July 1, and a new principal at Oakton Elementary School, Chris Robinson, started on Jan. 10.
