The fate of all these projects will be in the hands of the D113 School Board, but in April of 2013 the composition of the Board will change with an election of new members to the Board. A few current Board members will not be standing for re election, so there is a real chance to influence D113 policy on all matters beginning in April. Board members run for election without party affiliation and the process is starting now because petitions and signatures must be gathered and filed with the County several months before the election. That is why the School District Caucus is getting organized now. The Caucus is made up of volunteers from all the communities that feed into Highland Park and Deerfield. Volunteers draft up written and oral questions for candidates and hold open to the public meetings in November to listen to candidates, ask them questions and then vote on endorsement. The Caucus tries to find candidates who will represent all facets of the community and do their best for all students of the District, employees, and taxpayers. You do not need to be a parent or own property to be on the Caucus. This is an important step in the management of District policy. District 113 is likely the biggest tax line on your property tax bill, one of the biggest employers in the community and affects every child and family in the District as they pass through four years of high school. The Caucus is looking for volunteers contact Jean Sogin at District113Caucus@gmail.com
