Board members in North Shore School District 112 expressed concern Tuesday about the optics of using a superintendent search firm linked to a 2015 hiring controversy in their local high school district. Despite the concerns, they agreed to invite Rosemont-based Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA) to submit a proposal in order to expand their options beyond the two search firms interviewed Tuesday.
Visitors driving east on Central Avenue into downtown Highland Park can't miss a new six-story apartment building on the western edge of the business district. The 73-unit building known as McGovern House is the most visible sign of a resurgence in the downtown housing market. The building may also be a harbinger of what's to come if more developers take advantage of new zoning rules allowing taller buildings and greater density than Highland Park has allowed in the past.
The roster of administrators at Highland Park High School will undergo more changes July 1 with the promotion of two District 113 faculty members to assistant principal posts. A Highland Park High School department chair and a Spanish teacher at Deerfield High School will step into their roles when the school's new principal, Elizabeth Perez Robertson, takes the reins from her predecessor, Tom Koulentes.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
