Committee Meetings

The Board of Education also has committee meetings, which are work sessions usually regarding only a single topic. By Illinois law, the Board may not take official action at committee meetings. However, the public is always welcome to attend. These committee meetings often occur on the second Tuesday of the month at the usual time and place for Board Meetings. If there is a meeting, the agenda will be posted as required by law.


The most common board actions include approval of policies for the operation of the schools, employment of staff, adopting and monitoring the annual budget, adopting the annual tax levy, authorizing curriculum development, and providing general direction.
