  Statement on St. Joseph Catholic School Principal

The Diocese of Joliet confirmed today that Jeremy Hylka did not fulfill employment requirements while teaching at St. Joseph Catholic School in Lockport. He obtained a substitute teaching license in January 2021 and was not enrolled in a teacher preparation program, which is required to continue teaching in a full-time position. St. Joseph Catholic School Principal Lynne Scheffler has been placed on administrative leave, effective immediately, while school and diocesan officials examine the circumstances regarding Hylka’s employment.

Hylka was terminated from his position at the school on April 28.
