  • Board members are elected to four-year terms in the April General Election.

    District 45 Board Members "adopt" a school for periodic visits and chats.  This gives them increased opportunities for face-to-face contact with students, teachers and parents.  Listed below are our board members and their adopted school for the current school year.
