Message from the Superintendent, Mrs. Brandi Bruley                                                        

It is an honor to serve as the new Waverly superintendent. I am eager to work with the community and families and share some of our exciting plans for the school year.

As I begin as superintendent, my priorities include building communication and collaboration, improving academic achievement and student experiences, nurturing strong community partnerships, and improving the culture and climate in our schools.

I am eager to collaborate with our families, staff and community members to improve achievement for all students and ensure that every student has the resources and the opportunities to reach his or her full potential.

Our entire community plays a role in student success. As I start my first year in Waverly, I am eager to hear from families, staff, students and community members and learn from you. My goals for the next few months are to listen and learn and take action on the district’s most urgent and important concerns.  I am currently meeting with staff, board members, and the administrative team, and I would love to hear from you as well.  The purpose of these meetings is to learn about the needs and opportunities for students, families and staff. These sessions will also help to establish relationships and gather foundational context for the district. As a team, we’ll work to determine how we can continue to provide excellence.

I began my career in education in 1997 as a teacher for the Ball Chatham School District. Most recently, I served as the Superintendent for the New Holland Middletown District. Before that, I served 16 years as principal of North School in Taylorville. I have also been the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the Illinois State Board of Education. 

I look forward to working with you and the rest of the community to ensure a successful and fulfilling year ahead. I am honored to be part of the Waverly community. Be sure to follow Waverly Schools on our social media channels to see photos of the great things occurring each day. If you would like to contact me directly, please email me at [email protected]

Let’s work together to make this a wonderful school year!
