2020 School Board Recognition Designation

Congratulations to our Board of Education as they have earned the 2020 School Board Governance Recognition 2-year designation by the Illinois Association of School Boards! Our Board is one of only 15 School Boards to earn the distinguished recognition this year! This is the Board’s 3rd consecutive award – 2020, 2018, & 2016!

The School Board Governance Recognition program acknowledges school boards that learn and practice effective governance behaviors through participation in and support for board development programs and events. The primary focus of this program is on full board development and participation rather than individual board member efforts. Effective school boards understand that excellence in local school board governance requires full board commitment to obtaining knowledge, skills and abilities critical to good governance.

Members of the RLAS-116 Board of Education include: Kevin Daniels (President), Michael Francisco (Vice President), Annette Negrete McGinley (Secretary), Kevin Devera, Jennifer Klingler, Scott Jewitt, and Peg Larson.
