Each board member is required by law to undergo four hours of training within the first year of their first term. The training includes: Open Meetings Act applicability and legal requirements, education and labor law, financial oversight and accountability and fiduciary responsibility.

Board members are elected through caucus to serve staggered four-year terms.

Each Illinois school board member who is elected or appointed to fill a vacancy of at least one year’s duration must receive professional development leadership training (PDLT) and Open Meetings Act (OMA) training.
