Board of Education Letter to the MCHS Community

Dear MCHS Community,

The MCHS Board of Education would like to say thank you to all that participated in last night’s board meeting. We were deeply moved by the passion and concerns our students, parents, faculty, and community shared and expressed. We listened intently, and gave ample time to more than 40 speakers. We hear you.

As I shared in my opening statement at the meeting the Board of Education opposes racism in all forms, and we welcome a diverse staff.  Today we underscore our commitment to you and vow that racism has never, and will never, be tolerated at MCHS, in our classrooms, or in our boardroom.  We further vow to work with our students, staff, and our community on initiatives including training and programs to ensure that all are welcome in our schools.

In the coming days and weeks we will be working with our administrators on these initiatives and we will keep you informed.  We look forward to advancing upon our commitment of embracing a culture of equality and diversity for MCHS now, and into the future. 

Sincerely,

Mike Brozovich
MCHS Board President

General Information

The Minooka Community High School District 111 Board of Education is composed of elected representatives from the District 111 community. In Illinois, public education is the state's constitutional responsibility. The state delegates the authority to govern school districts to local school boards. Boards are made up of seven district residents elected to serve staggered terms of four years without pay. So, although the board is politically responsible to district voters, it is legally responsible to the state.

Specifically, the District 111 Board of Education works to:

  • adopt goals and policies that meet state requirements and reflect community needs;
  • provide the resources necessary to pursue its goals according to its policies; and
  • monitor district performance to see that results are consistent with goals and policies.The District 111 Board of Education operates under a committee structure.

Committees consist of one to three Board members, along with Administrative advisors. The committee structure allows Board members to study issues in-depth, and assist in forming recommendations for action by the full Board. Committee work takes place in open meetings, however, no action can be taken at a committee meeting. All action and business by the Board of Education is conducted during regular Board meetings.
