BUILDING A BETTER DISTRICT

Information | Communication | Transparency | Accountability

A Movement By Citizens  Demanding Transparency, Accountability, and Community Engagement for school districts in the State of Illinois.

Building A Better District is a taxpayer-led movement and is not affiliated with, nor endorsed by, the State or Regional Board of Education, any individual school district, or administration/Board of Education. 


School Board Elections

  • School board elections are held at the consolidated election on the first Tuesday in April of each odd-numbered year. (If that date conflicts with Passover, the election moves to the second Tuesday.) The terms of board members are staggered so there are three or four seats contested at each biennial election.
  • Links on this page are intended to provide access to information and publications regarding the next election that should be helpful for school board members, candidates, and voters.
  • The package from 2022 can be found and reviewed here.

Next School Board Elections: April 1, 2025

Open Positions: 4
