Board of Education Mission Statement
The Community Consolidated School District 93 Board of Education is dedicated to supporting the District's mission by setting goals, developing policy, monitoring progress, and evaluating performance with a focus on the achievement and best interests of all stakeholders.
The Role of Board of Education Members
The District is governed by a Board of Education consisting of seven (7) members elected to serve terms of four years. Illinois school board elections are generally held in April of odd-numbered years. Staggered terms of members are structured so that three or four seats are open at each election. The Board's powers and duties include the broad authority to adopt and enforce all necessary policies for the management and government of the public schools.
Members of the Board of Education serve without compensation. Actual and necessary travel and other expenses incurred by Board members while on approved district business will be reimbursed according to Board Policy.
Members of the Board of Education should endeavor to attend all meetings, discuss items presented on the agenda, suggest other items for consideration, and vote upon motions presented. Board members shall be non-partisan in dealing with school matters, and shall place the education of children above any partisan principal, group interest, or personal ambition.
Attendance and participation in local, state and national meetings designed to acquaint Board members with issues in public education, with new or proposed legislation, with policy development and administration of a school system, and with efficient Board operation shall be encouraged.
Board members also shall be encouraged to read current journals and other pertinent educational materials.
Official action by Board members must occur at a duly called and legally conducted meeting. A "Meeting" is defined as any gathering of the majority of a quorum of the Board or a majority of a quorum of any committee of the Board for the purpose of discussing school district business.
Board members, as individuals, have no authority over school affairs, except as provided by law or as authorized by the Board.
A primary function of the Board of Education in District 93 is to provide educational programs for each student, giving them the opportunity to develop to their fullest capacity in the areas of mental, physical, and emotional needs.
