Another Great School Year & Best Wishes Class of 2022

Another school year is nearing completion and the end of the challenging road to graduation for the class of 2022 has arrived. The journey for these students has been filled with great accomplishments and successes inside and outside the classroom. Our graduating class has represented our school district with class on all levels and it has been a privilege to be part of their educational experience at Williamsville Schools. The time has come for them to take the skills and qualities attained through their schooling experiences and impact our world in a positive manner. It is not a time to say goodbye to our graduates, but welcome them to a world of opportunity in which they are prepared to succeed.

Time to Celebrate & Best Wishes Class of 2021

May 3-7 was Teacher Appreciation Week. May 6 was Nurse Appreciation Day, and May 7 was Cafeteria Cooks appreciation day. On behalf of the WCUSD#15 Board of Education, I would like to personally thank all the WCUSD#15 staff for what they do every day for our students. The WCUSD#15 staff is the most important variables in the district, and our staff unselfishly meet this challenge daily.

As challenging as it was, it is time to celebrate the academic success of another great school year at WCUSD#15. We have great schools with many opportunities for students. We have successfully navigated the challenges of COVID-19. Our teachers and staff do a wonderful job instructing, caring, and challenging our students.

April and May are the months when the county clerk & township assessors finalize the taxing body’s levy extensions, mail out the property tax bills to the local tax payers, and send the final levy tax extension reports to school districts. Springtime is when the county clerk finalizes each taxing body’s tax rates. From these tax rate calculations, there are several tax extension/rate variables that are out of the school district’s and other taxing body’s control. Taxing bodies have no control over final township property assessments, property re-evaluation, township multipliers, Consumer Price Index (CPI), property tax appeals, and property tax exemptions. Increases or decreases in all of these uncontrollable variables affect a taxing body’s final tax rate which affects each individual property tax payer.

I want to encourage parents and families to be prepared for three types of school in August (In-person “normal school”; Remote Learning School; Hybrid School.) In the next three weeks school districts are supposed to be receiving guidance and direction from the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). I believe schools are made for social connections not social distancing.

District Dispatch May 2020


COVID-19 has affected our district financially, educationally, and our historical end of the year academic celebrations. COVID-19 has and is going to cause major challenges in all areas of operations of WCUSD#15. Together our two Villages are resilient and will be able to successfully navigate through COVID-19.

I feel it is important to take the time and reflect on the positives of WCUSD#15.

WCUSD#15 Zero Tax Rate Change Facility Plan:
One Hundred Percent Need; Zero Percent Tax Rate Change; Benefits All Families

Tuesday, March 17, 2020, the registered voters and the residents of Williamsville and Sherman CUSD#15 will be asked to approve a proposal to provide funding for the WCUSD#15 Zero Tax Rate Change Facility Plan.

In schools that thrive in communities such as ours, we educate the students of each other’s neighbors, friends, and family members. Such close-knit relationships result in high expectations for our schools as well as the educational programming and services we provide, and justifiably so. The WCUSD#15 Zero Tax Rate Change Facility Plan is a way for the communities of Williamsville and Sherman to provide opportunities for our students, enhance, upgrade, and build district facilities so that our students may learn in a quality educational environment for many years to come.

Illinois 5Essentials Survey to Improve Student Learning & WCUSD#15 Facility Plan

Students, parents, and teachers weigh in on school climate and learning conditions

Williamsville Schools will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for teachers, students, and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. Teachers, students, and parents will be asked to take a 10-minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment. This survey will also be an important chance for schools to reflect on progress since last year’s inaugural statewide implementation.

As part of the educational process, we need to plan, practice, prepare, and educate the community and students of the importance of school security. We are very fortunate to live in communities which are great places to raise kids. For the most part, we are very sheltered from society’s ills, and crime is not something we often witness or are exposed to. Consequently, we tend to take for granted the comforts given to us by living in such quiet communities, easily forgetting the importance of being diligent in maintaining safe practices.
