• The Zion-Benton Twp. High School deans are experienced district administrators who seek to proactively assist students in knowing and understanding school rules and in making positive and productive choices that lead to success in school and in life.  The deans are knowledgeable of district resources and will connect students to these helpful resources as appropriate.  They will also intervene when school rules and School Board Policy are violated and work with students and parents/guardians when disciplinary consequences are necessary.  The Deans Office is overseen by ZBTHS Assistant Principal Jack Niemi.
