School Boards Light the Way to Learning
November 15 marks the seventh official statewide observance of School Board Members Day in Illinois. The is the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to the Board of Education for their commitment to providing a local voice for your education decisions.
More than any other public servant, school board members must listen to the voices of their community and then craft a vision, mission, and goals for their district to accurately reflect the desires and objectives expressed by parents and residents. They act as guardians of two of the community’s most precious resources - the children and tax dollars - while working to create the best educational environment possible with the resources available.
Help us join with others from throughout Illinois in saluting our local education heroes.
