The Valley View School District 365U School Board Monday night unanimously approved Yolanda Jordan as the new principal at Bolingbrook High School.
Jordan, a former BHS dean of students and Romeoville High School assistant principal, has been serving as interim principal since mid-February, when Principal Michael White resigned.
Jordan was assistant principal at Romeoville High School for nearly four years before becoming BHS Interim Principal, and came to Valley View as BHS Dean in 2006. She helped found and sponsor a wide variety of student organizations at both RHS and BHS including RIGHT (Really Intelligent Girls Hanging Together), Mr. RIGHT, Guide Right and Multicultural Club, according to Valley View School District.
A Bolingbrook resident, she holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and a Master’s in educational leadership and administration from Chicago State University and is working toward her Doctorate in administrative leadership-teaching and learning from Walden University. She has experience as a science teacher at Homewood-Flossmoor High School, Lincoln Park High School and The Harvard School in Chicago and coordinated the science outreach programs at Chicago State for more than six years, according to the district.
