Board of Education
The Round Lake School District Board of Education is composed of seven citizens of the Round Lake Area. Members serve without compensation and are elected to four-year terms in April of odd-numbered years.
The Board of Education is a policy-making body that reflects the needs and interest of the taxpayers. One of the most important responsibilities of the Board of Education is to hire and evaluate the superintendent of schools. The Board of Education also sets educational goals and policies for the schools based upon state laws and community values.
Other responsibilities include:
- Authorizing the employment of staff members and setting their salaries
- Determining educational standards and goals and monitoring district performance
- Authorizing curriculum development and revision
- Securing money for school operational needs and building programs
- Adopting and monitoring a budget sufficient to carry out the district's goals
- Authorizing expenditures
2020 School Board Governance Award Designation
Congratulations to the RLAS-116 Board of Education. The Board is one of only 15 School Boards to earn the distinguished recognition this year! This is the Board’s 3rd consecutive award – 2020, 2018, & 2016!
The School Board Governance Recognition program acknowledges school boards that learn and practice effective governance behaviors through participation in and support for board development programs and events. The primary focus of this program is on full board development and participation rather than individual board member efforts. Effective school boards understand that excellence in local school board governance requires full board commitment to obtaining knowledge, skills and abilities critical to good governance.
