Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 is governed by a group of seven elected officials, referred to as the Board of Education. Each member is elected to serve four consecutive years and is eligible for an unlimited number of terms.
The Board is responsible for ensuring a high-quality education for the students of the district. They accomplish this by holding the superintendent and administration accountable for student success; developing effective policies that support the district’s vision and mission; approving expenditures and planning for financial stability; adopting new initiatives that move the district forward; and representing the voice of the community served by District 205.
The Board of Education maintains a comprehensive policy manual that defines the district perspective on various educational issues. Administrative procedures are then derived from policy, ensuring consistency in the operations of the district.
Policies are continuously reviewed in an effort to maintain relevance, compliance with school laws, and operational efficiency.
