|Galesburg School Administrator Moving to Monmouth-Roseville
|The top money man in the Galesburg School District is heading west in a move that he says he wasn't necessarily expecting to make.
The Monmouth-Roseville School Board Tuesday night voted to hire Paul Woehlke to be their next Superintendent, effective July first, at a $127,000 annual salary.
Woehlke is currently the Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations in the Galesburg School District, and tells WGIL he expects plenty of that experience to come into play in his new job. "The District (in Monmouth-Roseville) certainly has some financial challenges," Woehlke said. "So there are some aspects of my financial background that will come into play and be a value here. (The Board is) also looking for developing a strategic plan for the district, and I have experience in Galesburg in that."
Woehlke says the district, along with dealing with the state's continued financial mess, is about to run out of extra state money provided to districts for the first first four-years of their consolidation.
He says despite becoming certified to be a superintendent, he wasn't necessarily looking to leave Galesburg, who is expected to receive his resignation letter this morning, but believes District-238 will be, in his words, a perfect fit.
Woehlke will replace Martin Payne, who is leaving the district to become superintendent of the Metamora Grade School District.
