District 200 residents are invited and welcome to attend meetings of the District 200 Board of Education.
The Board of Education has developed and adopted Principles of Operation to guide its work. The principles were modified on October 9, 2013, and can be accessed by clicking here.May the Public Comment?
Public comments on issues related to the agenda items are invited at the beginning of each board meeting. Public comments on issues related to District 200 operations and programs, but not on the agenda, are invited at the end of the meeting. If citizens want to address the Board, we ask you to sign-in at the table located near the entrance to the meeting room. The Board requests that comments be limited to three minutes. While the Board appreciates all questions and comments, it is not prepared to respond to them at the meeting.Who Plans the Meetings?
The superintendent and board president plan the meeting agenda at least one week before the meeting. Documents pertaining to items on the agenda, along with information and recommendations from the superintendent, are delivered electronically to Board Members several days before the meeting. This procedure gives members necessary time to review agenda items and come to the meeting prepared to conduct District business. All non-confidential materials are available to the public through the web site under the Electronic School Board tab.
Who Attends the Meetings?
The Superintendent sits at the Board table during the meeting to advise and assist the Board. Other resource people who normally attend the meetings are the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, the Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources, the Assistant Superintendent for Student Services, the Assistant Superintendent for Business Operations, the Assistant Superintendent of Operations, the Executive Director of Technology, the Director of Public Relations, and the Secretary to the Superintendent.
