D38 has an extremely lean administration and despite a growing student population has significantly scaled back the number of administrators in the past ten years. Faced with shrinking state funding, the district cut administrative positions rather than teachers. In 2009, 12 administrators were employed at the district level. Today, in 2018, there are 5.
