  • Determining educational standards and goals and monitoring District performance.

  • Securing money for school operational needs and building programs.

  • Adopting and monitoring a budget sufficient to carry out the District's goals.

  • The Board of Education members are honored to serve the families of District 15.

MEETINGS

Agendas for Board of Education meetings are available at least 48 hours prior to the meeting. They may be viewed by clicking on Enter Public Site and the date of the meeting. Minutes from previous meetings may be found under Minutes, and Board of Education policies are listed under Policies. 

Citizens are invited to attend Board of Education meetings and to express their views on subjects related to the operation of the school system during the Reports Sessions, Outside Reports portion of every meeting.
