Lockport Township High School District 205 is served by seven Board of Education members who are elected by residents and who volunteer their time to lead our district. Board members serve four-year terms on a staggered basis and must reside in the district. The District 205 Board of Education adopts policies and rules that govern the administration of the school district. The Board operates in strict accordance with Illinois laws and Illinois State Board of Education regulations, and they adopt policy only when members meet in an official session.
All Illinois school board members must receive training in professional development leadership (P.A. 97-8) and the Open Meeting Act (P.A. 97-504). Mandatory training will also be required after the new teacher evaluation requirements are implemented in each school district. Completed development and training activity is listed for each school board member. Training was provided by the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) unless otherwise noted.
The School Board appoints and supervises the Superintendent of Schools, whose job it is to run the day-to-day operations of the school district and to provide educational leadership and vision for administrators, faculty, and staff. Many of you already are familiar with our Board members, but there may be some things that you do not know about them.
