School board members are the unsung heroes in communities throughout the country. They
establish the vision and goals for the public schools in their district, and they set standards for
the performance of schools and superintendents.
Most school board members are elected by people in their community to represent their values,
and desires for the public schools in their district. As selected leaders in their community, they
consistently communicate with the public to keep community members abreast of challenges,
ideas, and progress.
School board members are tasked with an important responsibility: educating nearly 50 million
children – almost nine out of every10 students – who receive their education in public schools.
Board members are more than policymakers and administrators; they are advocates for
students and their parents and entrusted to engineer a better future.
Katey, Leonard, and Matt all have children attending District 220 schools and have a passion for
education and their community.
