The date is officially designated each year as School Board Members Day in Illinois to recognize these public servants for their commitment and contributions to our public schools.
"Board of Education members are volunteers who take the lead on tough decisions which must be made on significant issues that affect not only our school, but the entire community. Their choices impact many aspects of our daily lives, and the service they provide allows the District 103 community to grow and thrive," said Dr. Scott Warren, District 103 Superintendent.
As community trustees for School District 103, the Board of Education members have oversight for an annual budget of more than $30 million; over 1800 students in Early Childhood through eighth grade; over 300 employees; and three school buildings.
"Board members give up their personal and family time because they understand the importance of local governance in our educational system. They sacrifice a great deal to ensure students have a high quality educational system that prepares them for success in college and careers, and to become leaders in the 21st Century," Dr. Warren said.
