EAST DUBUQUE, Ill. (KWWL) -

Greg Herbst will be the superintendent of the East Dubuque Schools for the upcoming year, the school board announced Friday.

In a release on their website, the board says they've reached an agreement with Herbst to reinstate him for the 2015-2016 school year.  They say they'll review and approve his reinstatement at a board meeting next week.

Herbst was placed on administrative leave earlier this summer, though board members declined to give a reason why, saying it would be illegal to do so.

Community reaction to the move was swift, with more than 1,800 people joining a Facebook group supporting Herbst.

Classes begin Friday, Aug. 21.
