Judy Wiegand Prepares to Become Unit 4’s Permanent Superintendent
Judy Wiegand becomes the Champaign School District's next permanent superintendent this year; replacing Arthur Culver, who left Unit 4 more than six months ago. Wiegand is currently serving in that role on an interim basis. She says she wants to improve offerings in career and technical education, and further develop the STEM initiative, which seeks to boost education in science, technology, engineering and math. Illinois Public Media's Sean Powers recently spoke with Wiegand about her goals for the district. She outlines a couple of areas that she wants to see added to Unit 4's strategic plan, which was developed in 2008.
