William C. Schewe

William C. Schewe has been a leader from his earliest days as a mathematics teacher in Michigan. A visionary and strategic thinker, Dr. Schewe has earned a reputation for his strong communication links with parents and teachers, and for his abiding commitment to the achievement of all students. He currently serves as the superintendent of the DuPage (Ill.) School District #45 in Villa Park, Illinois.

Much admired for his responsiveness to the needs of teachers and students, Dr. Schewe has played a powerful role at the Villa Park/Lombard schools. Among his many accomplishments including spearheading the passage of tax rate referendum, the relocation of a program for hearing-impaired students to the district, and serving as co-chair of the Legislative Education Network of DuPage and the Illinois Task Force on Assessment and Accountability. He also has been a leader on issues of property tax reform and school funding issues. He was instrumental in commissioning a state study that developed a cost-of-living index in Illinois that is based on objective and reliable sources and can be used as a tool in calculating any proposal for changing the funding of public schools. A former administrator at the Okemos and East Lansing schools, he has served as superintendent of Villa Park/Lombard schools since 1996. Prior to his current position, he served as a deputy superintendent and superintendent of the Cheboygan (Mich.) Area Schools and the Ionia (Mich.) Intermediate School District.

Dr. Schewe received his bachelor’s (1968) in history, and master’s (1971) and doctoral degrees (1987) in K–12 educational administration from MSU.
