Naperville, IL – The Naperville Community  Unit School District 203 Board of Education approved the appointment of Anthony (Tony) Casey at the March 1, 2021 meeting.  The seat was vacated by the resignation of Janet Yang-Rohr in January 2021, and in accordance with the School Code, the Board sought to fill the vacancy.  The process involved interested parties submitting letters of interest and a multi-step interview process.  Through this thorough process, Mr. Casey was unanimously selected and will serve the remaining balance of the term for Mrs. Yang-Rohr. The term will be up for election in 2023.

Mr. Casey’s professional experience includes serving as Deputy Dean at the University of Chicago Law School, Founder and Faculty Director for the Center of Law and Finance, Donald M. Ephraim Professor of Law and Economics, and serving in private practice.  Mr. Casey holds a J.D. from The University of Chicago Law School and an A.B. from Georgetown University.  He has three children enrolled in Naperville 203 and a fourth beginning next year.  He is also a proud graduate of Naperville Central High School, Madison Junior High School, and Scott Elementary.  Mr. Casey stated in his letter of interest that he brings three areas of expertise to the Board of Education including his experience as an educator, organizational governance, and finally as an educational administrator during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Mr. Casey brings an abundance of experience to the Board of Education, most especially his educational and legal expertise combined with his expertise and research in the role of boards in managing large organizations,” said Kristin Fitzgerald, Board of Education President.  “During the interview process we were impressed by what Mr. Casey could offer the Naperville 203 Board of Education and we look forward to working with him over the course of his term.”
