From the Illinois Policy Institute:
Change doesn’t happen overnight or in one election. But the foundation now exists to create real change in Illinois. We will continue our momentum on Full Slate by engaging in school board races, with local elections coming up April 4, 2023. These elections will affect your communities even more directly than the state election.
We’re helping folks who are interested in running for their local school board understand how the process works. Why does that matter?

School board members influence:
- Property taxes: Nearly two-thirds of our property taxes go toward local school districts.
- Keeping kids in school: Illinois students have been harmed by teacher strikes and school closures during the past several years.
- Keeping parents in the know: The best learning environment is a partnership between teachers and families. To do that, parents need to understand what their children are learning in the classroom.
And the best part is some school board candidates could make great state representative candidates in 2024.
