QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The Quincy School Board has a new look.

Three new members were sworn in, and there's a new president, who says some big changes are on the way for the district.

The board elected Stephanie Erwin to be its new leader at tonight's special organizational meeting.

Erwin is the First woman to be elected school board president since 1989.

Erwin says she has a strong vision for the district, one that includes, possible disciplinary improvements and even building changes for students.

"Where do we want to be in two years? Do we want our buildings starting to be built? Do we want re-districting? Do we want different campuses, you know what do we do with the 9th graders? We want to move them over. So we just want the schools to be unified," said Erwin.

Newly elected board members Richard McNay, Sayeed Ali, and Sheldon Bailey, were also sworn in at tonight's meeting.

The board said goodbye Thursday night to outgoing president Bill Daniels, former president Tom Dickerson, and Steve Krause--- the three had a combined 26 years experience on the board.
