Kaneland D302 Seeks New Board Member


The Board of Education of Kaneland Community Unit School District #302 currently seeks applicants to fill a vacancy existing from the resignation of Board Member Cheryl Krauspe. The individual selected will serve on the School Board from the date of appointment through the April 4, 2017 consolidated election.

Interested applicants should submit a letter of application and resume to the Board of Education at 47W326 Keslinger Road, Maple Park, Illinois 60151 by Monday, September 26, 2016 at 8:00 am.

Please note: Current School Board Policy prevents having more than three (3) School Board Members seated from any one Township in our District. At the present time, we have three Board Members from Blackberry Township currently on our Board of Education. Therefore, applications from Blackberry Township cannot be accepted at this time.

Applicants should show familiarity with the Board’s policies regarding general duties and responsibilities of a Board and a Board Member, including fiduciary responsibilities, conflict of interest, ethics and gift ban. The Board’s policies are available at http://www.kaneland.org/board-of-ed.
