The District 75 School Board on Feb. 27 approved the hiring of Dr. Andrew Vondran to serve as the next principal at Carl Sandburg Middle School.

Vondran will begin at CSMS on July 1, following the retirement of long-time CSMS Principal Mark Pilut. He was selected following the feedback of both staff and students who asked that the new principal be approachable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable of middle school learners.

“We are very thrilled Dr. Vondran has all of those characteristics,” said Dr. Sarah Cacciatore, Deputy  Superintendent for Districts 75 and 120. “He will be a great fit for the school and our community.”

Currently in his seventh year as an assistant principal at Hubble Middle School in Wheaton Warrenville School District 200, Vondran also spent six years teaching middle school math and social studies.

He earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Illinois University in 2006, a Masters of Education Degree from Aurora University in 2010, a General Administration Masters Degree from the University of St. Francis in 2013, and a Doctorate in Education from Northern Illinois University in 2023.
