• Board Meetings

    The public is invited and encouraged to attend Board of Education meetings. Business meetings are normally held the second Wednesdays of each month. Committee of the Whole meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of most months. The business meetings are rotated among the District's schools during the school year and are normally held in the School Service Center during school holidays and vacations. Committee of the Whole meetings are held at the School Service Center. Public comments on issues related to agenda items are invited at the beginning of each board meeting. Public comments on issues related to District 200 operations and programs. 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.

    The superintendent and board president plan the meeting agenda at least a week before the meeting. Documents pertaining to items on the agenda, along with information and recommendations from the superintendent, are delivered to Board Members electronically 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.

    The Illinois Open Meetings Act requires each public body to give public notice of its schedule of dates, times and places for regular meetings at the beginning of each calendar or fiscal year and to make the schedule generally available. All regular meetings and Committee of the Whole meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. *Note this is an earlier start time from previous years.*

    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 here.
