The Wilsona School District Board of Trustees will be taking official board action on the approval of a new Superintendent at the June 21 regular scheduled board meeting.
The Wilsona School Board is proud to announce that Susan Andreas-Bervel will succeed Teresa Grey who will be retiring after 33 years in the Wilsona School District with the last 9 years as the Superintendent.

The Wilsona School District Board of Trustees unanimously stand together in our decision as we look forward to working closely with Susan Andreas-Bervel to continue to provide the best educational experience for our students of the Wilsona School District and a safe, collaborative working environment for our staff.”
