Role of the Board of Education: 
The seven members of the Board of Education are locally elected citizens who serve without pay for a four-year term of office (unless appointed to a two year term). They are responsible for the educational program, as well as the facilities and grounds of Pontiac Township High School. The Board is required to conduct the school in accordance with Constitution of the State of Illinois, the Illinois School Code, rules and regulations set down by the Illinois State Board of Education, and the rules and regulations which have been developed and adopted by this Board of Education. The Board of Education is a policy-making body delegating the administration of the school district to the Superintendent.

Per 105 ILCS 205/20, school board members elected or appointed to their seat after June 2011 are required to complete a minimum of four hours of professional development leadership training. This training must be completed in the first year of their term and covers topics such as education and labor law, financial oversight and accountability, and fiduciary responsibilities of board members. School board members are also required to complete training on the Open Meetings Act. To view a current listing of Board Members training, please click the link below:
