Board of Education
About the Board of Education
The Belvidere School District is governed by a seven member Board of Education consisting of four members from Belvidere Township and three members from the remaining townships. All board members are non-paid, elected officials who serve four-year terms. The school board election is nonpartisan, and candidates do not run under political party affiliations.
To contact the entire board via email, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be advised that any written communication to email@example.com will be provided to all board members and the Superintendent of Schools and will be subject to disclosure under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. Written communication to member individual addresses below is also subject to disclosure under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.
Past video recordings of board meetings starting in the 2021-2022 school year can be found on the district's YouTube channel.

The third webinar in the series is scheduled for November 30 at 6:30 p.m. and will cover Petition Filing, including how, when, and what to file, as well as navigating the objection process. The webinars are open to IASB members and the public, allowing all potential candidates to participate.
