Teacher Retires Amid Internal Investigation

Barrington High School Fine Arts Department Chair Julie Salk has retired from District 220 after being placed on administrative leave in April.

Nearly two months after being placed on administrative leave, Fine Arts Department Chairwoman Julie Salk has retired from Barrington 220 School District.

. Local authorities also are involved in the situation, which a school official said has not been resolved.

“Whether a person retires, resigns or terminates, that doesn’t preclude the district or local authorities from further action if and when they may discover that something would warrant that,” said Jeff Arnett, chief communications officer.

Arnett said there was no separation agreement in her retirement, and she will not receive any benefits directly from District 220.

“She has taught for 20 years, so she could receive retirement through the Teacher Retirement System in the state of Illinois, but she won’t receive any direct benefits from the school district,” Arnett said.

Barrington Patch has inquired about the situation with the Barrington Police Department and has not yet received a return phone call.

Great article on TEAMDAD! Love the Great Dad's Coin. It is important to recognize the importance of fatherhood and the impact fathers make in their kids lives. The Hirsch's are dedicated and always working to help men become better fathers and doing a great job. My hats off to them!

"“She has taught for 20 years, so she could receive retirement through the Teacher Retirement System in the state of Illinois, but she won’t receive any direct benefits from the school district,” Arnett said." No direct benefits, except for twenty years your School District has been claiming tax monies for the Teacher Retirement System!!!!! Smoke in your eyes, that is YOUR money that is supporting a problem that can't be fixed as long as the Teachers Union turns the screws at every contract date........ I said this twenty years ago, they graduate hamburger flippers and want more money than I ever earned in 46 years at my job. Sure, a lot go to college, those that can afford it! The rest are just sea foam blowing on the wind...
