Beal City Central Office Staff
William Chilman IV - Superintendent
William C. Chilman IV is our superintendent of schools. Mr. Chilman was approved by the Beal City Public Schools Board of Education at a special school board meeting on Thursday, August 2, 2007 at 7:00a.m. with a 7-0 vote of the board. Bill joined us after he spent the first four years of his career in Brimley Area Public Schools as a health/PE and science teacher and the district’s athletic director, and the next ten years of his career as the Meridian Junior High School principal in Meridian Public Schools in Sanford, Michigan.
Mr. Chilman grew up and attended high school in Gladwin. From there Bill received his bachelor’s degree in education from CMU and his master’s degree in educational administration from NMU. Bill has now completed his educational specialist’s degree in educational leadership from CMU and has begun working on his doctorate degree.
Mr. Chilman’s focus as the superintendent of Beal City Public Schools will be to continue to improve the excellence that Beal City has shown over the years academically, artistically, and athletically. Bill believes the three most important jobs a superintendent has are to, first and foremost, improve student achievement. Secondly, during these financially difficult times maintain the district’s fiscal integrity. Third, but not least of all, promote the school district and provide positive school and community relations throughout the Mid-Michigan area.
Bill is a fan of a wide variety of sports and enjoys landscaping and spending time with his wife, Tami and their sons, Billy and Logan. The Chilmans love taking advantage of Michigan’s beauty by partaking in all kinds of outdoor activities, especially summer water sports and winter snowmobiling at their cottage in Lake City. Tami has been quite active in the boys’ education and volunteering at school and church. Tami has returned to work full-time in the business world as an accountant for Boge, Wybenga, and Bradley PC.
