Board of Education Statement:
February 18, 2022
At the regular meeting of the Board of Education on February 14, 2022, during the public participation segment of the meeting, a Board member interacted with a member of the public in ways that are inconsistent with our District’s mission and values. The Board member’s behavior was profane, unprofessional, and disrespectful.
The words and actions displayed by the Board member violated the member’s Oath of Office, several Board policies, and the Code of Conduct to which Board members are held through our institutional membership in the Illinois Association of School Boards. Perhaps most troubling, the conduct did not display the language and decorum we try to model for our students during public discourse.
We disavow such language and behavior and shall not tolerate them at any level. We appreciate everyone’s ongoing support, while we focus on the students, staff, and community our schools serve.
