Since the AIO position was created four(?) years ago, there's been grumbling about AIOs being mostly former principals who were not necessarily the best leaders for the job, just the most available. At the same time, there's been grumbling from AIOs that the position was ill-defined and essentially a dead-end job.
Well, chalk another one up to my corps of excellent (and anonymous) commenters, who often seem to know what's going on before anyone else. They started mentioning the name Jose Torres at least a couple of weeks ago, and it turns out that Torres is what I think may be the first out of town AIO in CPS. His job announcement seems to have showed up on the Broad Foundation website before anyone at CPS got around to mentioning it. Funny that they call him a regional superintendent. Will the AIO position change with the reorg? Maybe so.
