The Williamsville-Sherman School District is profoundly grateful to have been led by Mr. David J. Root. 

Mr. Root lived a life to be emulated.  He possessed not only the qualities of a leader and mentor, but also those of a good friend. 

Mr. Root’s financial acumen was second to none.  He worked tirelessly to help make the Williamsville-Sherman school district a premier school district in Illinois, all while ensuring he treated people the way he wanted to be treated. 

His legacy of strength, grace, perseverance and a wonderful sense of humor will live on forever. 

Our school family has suffered several immeasurable losses and this is no exception.  

Mr. Root remains close to our hearts and minds as we prepare ourselves to continue the work he began in a way that will prove worthy of honoring his memory. 

We ask that you join us in keeping his precious Julie, Mia and Dalton in your thoughts and prayers. 


Visitation was held at the Williamsville Jr. High School Gymnasium on Sunday, September 11, 2016 from 1:00 until 6:00 PM.

Funeral Mass, officiated by Father Jeff Goeckner, was held at St. John Vianney Church in Sherman on Monday, September 12, 2016 at 10:00 AM.

The State Budget Mess

milesOn Thursday, May 12, 2016, the Williamsville-Sherman School District lost an outstanding educator and a tremendous role model. Mandi Miles, first grade teacher, fought a courageous five year battle with cancer. We were so blessed to have her work with our children over her 12 year tenure in our district.

Unthinkable budget scenario for schools not so far-fetched

 

It is impossible not to notice the daily headlines in the local newspapers and media outlets dealing with the State’s budget crisis and the impact it is having on public schools in Central Illinois and all across the State. For Williamsville Schools, we are projected to lose close to another $600,000 in pro-rated General State Aid revenue this year, and that doesn’t count the millions we’ve not received from the State in revenue over the past several years. Moreover, future years will continue to be tight because of the State’s financial problems and it is apparent the State’s financial problems will not be solved in the near future. Let there be no mistake about it, this is going to continue to be a very lean time for our school district. This State’s financial problem is very real. It will take every cent and every cost savings measure to maintain our educational programs throughout these difficult times.
