Voters' choice of Jill Underly as State Superintendent of Schools is drawing positive reactions from school superintendents in Door and Kewaunee counties. Underly, who currently serves as Pecatonica School Superintendent, was elected Tuesday as Wisconsin's top educator. Some area superintendents believe Underly understands the challenges local districts have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gibraltar School Superintendent Tina Van Meer says Underly's commitment to improving broadband internet access for schools shows the growing importance of remote learning.
Underly's commitment to early childhood education is being welcomed by Kewaunee School Superintendent Karen Treml, especially when it comes to funding all-day Four-Year-Old Kindergarten.
Jill Underly will take over as State School Superintendent in July.
