Information Concerning Procedures at Board of Education Meetings
District 75 Board of Education meets once a month, on the fourth Tuesday, at 7 p.m. in the Meeting Room. The Board welcomes all visitors. Your presence is an indication of community interest in our school. The Board follows an agenda, which is posted on the website 48 hours before the meeting. Copies are also available at each meeting. Extensive background material has been prepared by the Superintendent and has been distributed to Board Members prior to each meeting. This allows board members the opportunity of calling the Superintendent's office for clarification and additional information and enables the Board of Education to act more quickly on agenda items than would otherwise be possible.
At each meeting, there is an opportunity for individuals to address the Board. After the Board votes to adopt the agenda, the President will ask if any visitors wish to speak. Each visitor will be asked to state his or her name, and affiliation with any organization on whose behalf they are speaking. Each individual will be allowed a reasonable time to speak.
The seven members of the Board of Education are locally elected citizens who serve without pay for a four-year term of office. They are responsible for the educational program, as well as the facilities and grounds of District 75. The Board is required to conduct the school in accordance with the Constitution of the State of Illinois, the Illinois School Code, rules and regulations set down by the Illinois State Board of Education, and the rules and regulations which have been developed and adopted by this Board of Education.
The Board of Education is a policy-making body. It has delegated the administration of the school district to the professional administrative staff under the leadership and direction of the Superintendent.
