U-46 Board of Education


    The Board of Education is responsible for determining the policies which guide the operation of School District U-46. State law holds school boards responsible for policies in these areas: approval of courses of study and textbooks, adoption of an annual budget, construction, furnishing and maintenance of facilities, employment and evaluation of the superintendent.

    Elected members serve four-year terms and are not paid for their services. To be eligible to serve, a school board member must meet the following requirements on the date of election: a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years old, a registered voter, a resident of the State of Illinois, and a resident of School District U-46 for at least one year immediately preceding the election. All seven U-46 Board members have completed the Open Meetings Act Training as required under the Illinois School Code, (5 ILS 120/1.06) and the Professional Development Leadership Training.     

    Two U-46 administrators join the Board at the table during meetings: Interim Superintendent Dr. Suzanne Johnson and Chief Legal Officer Trisha Olson, who serves as the Board Secretary.
