Silvis Chooses New Superintendent

UT School District

After several months of interviews and meetings, the Silvis School Board has selected a new superintendent. Pending a formal vote Wednesday night, Terri Vandewiele will take over in July.

School board president, Kevin Rossmiller, says Doctor Vandewiele started her career in education 20 years ago teaching chemistry and science. And for the past 6 years she's served as Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction at United Township High School in East Moline.

She was one of two finalists selected from a list of eight possible candidates recommended by the Illinois Association of School Boards.

Vandewiele will replace Ray Bergles who'll retire in June. The Silvis School District has about 600 students in kindergarten through the 8th grade.
