A Message from Dr. Abby Humbles:

As many of you may or may not know, last year I made the decision to officially retire. After 24 years at the great Norwood School District 63, I look forward to spending more time with immediate and extended family!  Norwood District 63 is in wonderful condition and will be left in the very capable hands of a Farmington native.  I am extremely grateful to have been able to spend a large portion of my career in the wonderful communities of Bellevue and Norwood in the Limestone Area.

After an extensive search utilizing the services of the Illinois School Board Association, the Norwood Elementary District School Board has selected Mr. Dave Black to be your next Superintendent of Schools.  Mr. Black will be visiting the district often, working closely with me to make this a smooth transition. When you meet Mr. Black, please join me in welcoming him to our school community.

Mr. Black comes to Norwood with an extensive background in Special Education and Finance. He has been Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Operations at Galesburg District 205 since 2013.   Before moving to District 205, Black served as the Superintendent of Abingdon District 217 from July 2011 to June 2013, when it consolidated with Avon District 176.  Prior to that, he worked at Farmington Central District 265 as the Director of Student Services from July 2007 to June 2011. Before transferring to Farmington, Black worked for seven years in Bartonville School District 66 as Dean of Students and Technology Director.  

Congratulations, Mr. Black.  We look forward to your leadership and expertise.  As I have said since my first year here:  "Norwood School District is a great place to be!"                   




Mr. Dave Black, 2015-2016 Superintendent
