Education Related Community Groups

Delegate Assembly

This group meets in order to recommend candidates for upcoming District 102 Board of Education elections. The committee meets only when BOE seats will be on the ballot in an upcoming election. The Delegate Assembly seeks out, interviews, and endorses a slate of candidates for District 102 School Board. When the Delegate Assembly is convened, all parents in the district are given the opportunity to join the group and be part of the selection process. Assembly members from each school area within the district are needed. The obligations are as follows:

Attendance at 3 - 4 evening meetings in the fall of each even numbered year. One will be a presentation / Q&A with the Superintendent of Schools, and one or two others will be candidate interview nights.

Potential sub-committee meetings for things such as developing questions to ask the candidates during the interview, assisting the endorsed candidates with petition filing and campaigning, etc.

Willingness to serve on the Delegate Assembly for 2 election cycles.

This is a great way to give a moderate commitment, but have a high impact on our children's education!
