Board of Education

The safety and health of our students, staff, and community members is very important.  Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order 2020-07 suspended the requirement of in-person attendance at meetings of public bodies at this time.  We are being diligent about following these recommendations and current guidelines from the Illinois Department of Public Health to take social distancing measures.  At this time, Board of Education meetings will be held virtually.  The public is welcome to virtually participate in the Regular Board of Education Meetings.   The public can listen to the meeting live by calling (331) 209-0638 Conference ID: 815226751

Public comments are allowed during the comment section of the meeting and are limited to three minutes per person.  Individuals wishing to address the board during public comment at the meeting are asked to complete a virtual Public Comment Information Card.  Please email the Board Secretary, jengfer@sd129.org, and include your name, phone number and topic prior to the start of the meeting at 6pm.  

If you require ADA assistance, please contact the board secretary one week in advance of the meeting at 630-301-5033.
