HINSDALE – Hinsdale Township High School District 86 received a request last week from Superintendent Nicholas Wahl to negotiate a resignation agreement effective immediately.

Wahl has served the district for eight years.

Wahl requested that he be released from his contract and that the 120 day notice period be waived. The receipt of this request was unexpected, according to officials. Officials also said they are unaware of his future plans or reasons for the request.

Despite this request coming just prior to the start of the 2013-14 school year, the board deliberated and agreed to honor Wahl's request Monday.

The Board of Education announced that the district's current assistant superintendent for instruction, Bruce Law, has accepted the appointment as acting superintendent for District 86.

The administrative change will not impact the opening of the 2013-14 school year, according to officials. School staff is in place and normal school preparations are proceeding as planned.
