The District 202 school board announced today that its members reached “an informal, unanimous consensus” at an executive session of the board Tuesday night to name Eric Witherspoon the new superintendent of Evanston Township High School.

Witherspoon has been superintendent of schools in Des Moines, Iowa for the last eight years.

The board initially voted 4 to 3 to hire Witherspoon last week, but the rest of the board came around after three board members made a visit to Des Moines on Friday.

Details of the new superintendent’s contract are still being negotiated. The board plans to officially confirm the hiring of the new superintendent at its regular meeting next Monday.
