Carol Rubin was announced as the next associate director of the Laboratory Schools in an email message to the Lab community March 18. She begins April 1.

Ms. Rubin previously was a senior adviser at the University of Chicago, and she has been a leader in the Chicago Public Schools administration, Chicago Transit Authority and Chicago Park District during a career spanning more than 30 years.

She is the parent of two Lab alumni, Alec Kaplan, who graduated from U-High in 2017, and Sam Kaplan, who graduated from U-High in 2014.

In his email to the community, Director Charlie Abelmann said, “Carol will support my immediate needs as Director of the Schools and will undertake a review of our organizational processes and structure, among other responsibilities. Her joining Lab at this time is a strategic staffing choice to ensure continuity and to deploy additional resources right away that draw on her expertise and familiarity with Lab.”

Ms. Rubin will replace Christopher Jones, who will leave the Lab Schools at the end of the school year.
