The Springfield School Board has turned to a familiar face to be the next superintendent of District 186.
Jennifer Gill spent nearly 20 years as a teacher and administrator in the district. She was one of two finalists to replace Walter Milton… who was ousted by the school board earlier this year.
Gill and the board are currently in negotiations over her contract… including pay and benefits.
Her official start date has not been set… but Gill says her top priority will be a thorough review of the district’s budget and ways to eliminate an expected $5 to 6 million deficit.
