The Trustees of the School City of East Chicago have named Dr. Youssef Yomtoob as the district’s new superintendent. His appointment begins July 1. 

School Board President Jesse Gomez said, “During the Superintendent Search Process, it became clear to the Board that Dr. Yomtoob would bring a great deal of leadership experience and a tremendous amount of passion to our schools. Over the years, he has worked with a variety of diverse districts to increase student achievement while also building stable finances and sustainable programs.”

"Dr. Joe" as he is known, has been an educator for more than 50 years. Dr. Yomtoob says, 
“Education is my passion and my calling. Given the right environment, I know that each and every child will succeed. By working in collaboration with teachers and staff – and working together with the entire East Chicago community – I know we will create that environment of achievement.”
