  • DR. JOSH REITZ (Assistant Superintendent for Learning Services)


    Hello and welcome to the McHenry Elementary School District 15 Curricular Platform.  My name is Josh Reitz and I serve as the Assistant Superintendent for Learning Services.  I have spent the past seven years in District 15—the first four as a principal in the district and the past three in this role.  I am proud and excited to be a part of this outstanding school district and am looking forward to a great year.  MESD #15 is a wonderful district filled with caring, devoted and talented people who work diligently for your children. 

    Before joining District 15, I served as a middle school assistant principal for four years in District #304 in Geneva, IL and prior to that, I was an English teacher and coach at Johnsburg High School for six years. 

    In our school district we take pride in working to meet the needs of our students and serving our community.  To that end, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding our curriculum, services that we provide or programs that we offer.  I can be reached through email at jreitz@d15.org or by phone at (779) 244-1000 and am also certainly available to meet in person at mutually convenient times.    

    Thank you for visiting our website.  We believe it is a good resource for you to access and use in order to learn more about our school district.  I wish you a happy and successful school year.

    DR. FRED LAUDADIO (Executive Director of Learning Services and Technology)


    Thank you for visiting the McHenry District 15 Curricular Platform! My name is Fred Laudadio.

    As an employee in School District 15, I am honored to work alongside many of the finest educators who are truly motivating, passionate and inspiring in their craft. My work experience has allowed me to be a life-long learner in all grade levels Pre-K through High School. Additionally, I bring a collegiate perspective while spending many years employed with higher level institutions and universities.

    My goals include continuing to provide a diverse, quality education to students as a teacher, administrator, coach, or in any other capacity I may serve. As an educational leader and a passionate learner, I feel I share the same desire as a Kindergartener coming to school and getting off the bus for the very first time. I try to instill this desire of learning each and every day, and to challenge others with the highest achievable goals they can set for themselves.

    My educational philosophy models how learning is based on discovery guided by mentoring. In reality, it is a lot more than just the transmission of information. Young learners need to be educated first. We need to encourage and guide them to think for themselves and to use their education as a means for attaining their future goals. Each student will be respected as an individual for his or her unique abilities and means of self-expression. Intelligence, critical thinking skills, and character will be developed through education to bring learners of all kinds to their potential.

    Please feel free to contact me anytime through email at flaudadio@d15.org or by phone at (779) 244-1000.
