West40 is pleased to welcome Cicero District 99 superintendent Dr. Aldo Calderin as the newest member of its governing board.

As superintendent of the state’s fourth largest elementary school district, Calderin leads more than 9,000 students and more than 1,000 employees at fifteen schools. Calderin said West40 symbolizes the “We Move Forward Together” motto that guides his current school district.

“West40 is an amazing opportunity for myself to be part of a team that supports not only local school districts, but around the state as a model to be able to support others,” said Calderin. “I look forward to being part of a team that helps others and moving forward our districts together.”

Calderin started his education career in 2004, where he began teaching in District 99 as a bilingual math and science teacher. He also served as an assistant principal in Elgin Area School District U-46 and principal of District 99’s Unity Junior High School.

Calderin was selected to fill an open seat on the West40 board, which is composed of school district leaders, principals, teachers, principals, and school board members from across West Cook County.  The board advises the executive director and is involved in setting the course for the organization.

Dr. Mark Klaisner, executive director of West40, said Calderin is known for being a voice for students.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Calderin to the West40 Governing Board. He has a rich background of experience and expertise. Additionally, he is the superintendent of our largest elementary district,” said Klaisner. “He perfectly aligns with the vision and mission of West40. Welcome!”
