During the past 10 years as a school administrator, Grason has been a New Leaders Resident Principal, an assistant principal and most recently a principal in Morgan Park. She holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of New Mexico and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from DePaul University.

Assistant Principal Boyd taught middle school science for 13 years in Chicago prior to joining District 130. She has been an active teacher leader in preparation for her new role. She holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental sciences from Eckerd College and a master’s degree in administration from National Lewis University.
