A School Board member must be, on the date of election or appointment, a United States citizen, at least 18 years of age, a resident of Illinois and the District for at least one year immediately preceding the election and a registered voter.
Reasons making an individual ineligible for Board membership include holding an incompatible office, and certain types of State or federal employment. A child sex offender, as defined in State law, is ineligible for School Board membership.
The Illinois Association of School Boards offers information about the role and duties of a school board member on their Web site: www.iasb.com/elections/ .
Your best source for the School Board Election is the DuPage County Board of Elections. They are very knowledgeable and very helpful.
