Danville’s Schlarman Academy has a new principal. The Peoria Catholic Diocese has announced that Mark Janesky has been promoted to principal. He had been the assistant principal. A statement from the Office of Catholic Schools thanked the removed principal, Gail Lewis ‘’for her years of service to the families and alumni of Schlarman Academy of Danville.’’
Janesky says there were no improprieties. “I think they just wanted to move in a new direction.” Janesky is a Danville native and has served 38 years in education. Lewis, also a Danville native, graduated from Schlarman in 1994 and was hired as principal in June 2013.
