Wednesday, November 15, is designated as "School Board Members Day" in Illinois. This day serves to recognize the outstanding efforts of nearly 6,000 elected school board members across our state, including the seven dedicated members of the Libertyville School District 70 Board!
School board members are volunteers serving as advocates striving for quality education opportunities for every student.
- Our board members act as front-line advocates providing a local voice for the community, a vision for the district, and a pathway to success for our students.
- Our board of education acts to safeguard two of our community’s most precious resources – our children and tax dollars – while striving to create the best education environment possible with the resources available.
- Our school board members wear many hats; they are education leaders, policymakers, contract negotiators, and budgeters. But they are also our neighbors, our friends, and District 70's biggest fans!
Thank You, Jennifer Khan, Travis McGhee, Nan Dahlke, Angela Balanag, Brain Lawton and Wendy Schilling!
