Mr. Chris Spencer » Welcome!


Welcome to Coal City High School! I am excited for my second year as the Principal of CCHS.  It is hard to believe that the start of school is already here and we are starting school during these unprecedented times.  Regardless of how we are starting school this year, I am extremely happy that we will be seeing our students in person.
Here is a little information of where I have been and what I have done in Coal City School District.  I started at Coal City High School in 1998 as a Physical Education and Driver Education Teacher.  Then I moved on to Dean of Students at CCHS and CCMS for 6 years, and then for 8 years I was Principal of Coal City Early Childhood Center and Coal City Elementary School. Next, I was the Associate Principal of Coal City High School and last year was my first year as Principal of Coal City High School.  I am thrilled and fortunate to lead a terrific staff, and the best students around for a second year in a row!
I received my Bachelors Degree in education from Eastern Illinois University.  I later earned my Masters in Education Administration from Governor's State University, and then I received my Superintendent certificate from Northern Illinois University.
I look forward to working with the students, families, and staff of Coal City High School.
If I can be of assistance please contact me at 815 634-2396, ext 1703 or email
