The Board of Education and Its Duties
The Board of Education consists of seven members. They are elected by residents of the District to serve as representatives and to oversee the operation of D102. Members participate in committees and serve as liaisons with members of D102's Administration Team. Board members are elected to four-year terms. State law does not limit the number of terms Board members may serve. Members serve without pay and elect their officers. 
 

LaGrange School District 102's Board Meetings are open to the public. Meetings are generally held on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Park Junior High School in the LRC, located at 325 North Park Road in LaGrange Park. Formal action is taken only at board meetings with advanced notice given. When necessary, special, adjourned, or committee meetings are held throughout the year.
