November 15 marks School Board Members Day in Illinois — an official statewide observance providing school districts and communities the opportunity to show support for their local board of education and their commitments to providing a local voice for educational vision.

Leadership has taken on new meaning in 2020, and School Board Members Day is a time to reflect on the board's role in creating lasting educational opportunities that meet local desires and offer a pathway to a successful future for each and every child.

Over the past several years, Cicero District 99's board of education has played a pivotal role in championing many successes in the district: bringing STEAM education to the forefront; supporting the implementation of one-to-one technology for all students; overseeing the construction of new schools and remodeling existing spaces to bring 21st-century, flexible learning spaces to Cicero; embracing dual-language education and multicultural programming; and much more.
