Board members take seats

Community members recently elected by the public to serve on the D300 School Board were sworn into office on April 29. This ceremony was followed by the election of officers, appointment of committee leaders and approval of the 2013-14 Board meeting schedule.

All Board members are volunteers who serve 4-year terms without compensation.  Re-elected incumbents Anne Miller and Dave Alessio joined the newly elected Kathleen Burley in taking their oaths of office last evening (April 29).  To watch a short video of their swearing-in ceremony, please visit our Board Docs webpage:  Click on the Special Board Meeting (April 29) link on the left, then click Watch Video and choose agenda item #1.7.

The Board members elected Mrs. Miller to continue serving as their board president.  The Board elected Mr. Joe Stevens as board vice president and Mr. Alessio as board secretary.  District 300 Chief Financial Officer Susan Harkin will continue as the board treasurer.

With a large amount of the Board’s work happening at the committee level, the selection of committee leaders is always an important decision that has a significant impact on the school district.  President Anne Miller made following appointments last evening, noting that additional appointments may be made in the coming months on other initiatives:

  • Board Human Resources Committee: Joe Stevens and Kathleen Burley will serve as co-chairs
  • Board Finance Committee: Dave Alessio and Chris Stanton will serve as co-chairs
  • Board Legislative Committee: Steve Fiorentino and Kathleen Burley will serve as co-chairs
  • Board Construction & Facility Oversight Committee: Joe Stevens and Susie Kopacz will serve as co-chairs
  • Board Education Committee: Susie Kopacz and Dave Alessio will serve as co-chairs
