Emeritus Fellows

Congratulations to the Board of Education members of Dolton School District 149. Our board members attended the 82nd Annual Joint Conference with the Illinois Association of School Boards, the Illinois Association of School Administrators, and the Illinois Association of School Business Officials.

On Friday, November 21, 2014 the Board of Education completed their Leadership Academy Program at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois.  All seven school Board Members are officially Fellows.  A Board Fellow is the highest achievement any School Board Member can achieve.  A Board Fellow is recognized for their commitment to continuous learning.  This Spring of March 2015, they will be recognized as the first School Board in the State of Illinois where all seven members are Fellows.

Our Board of Education members will receive a Leadership Academy pen, a plaque recognizing their achievement and they will be invited to serve in advisory and/or mentoring positions around effective governance issues.  The Board will also have their names of Member Emeritus displayed on a permanent honor roll, displayed at the Illinois Association of School Board's Office and will be offered the opportunity to receive a lifelong subscription to IASB publication.  Additionally, our School Board Academy Fellows will have the opportunity to attend a special Biennial Academy Symposium designed especially for them.

As the District and Board’s Superintendent I am proud of their hard work and their commitment to the children and families in the four communities we serve.  Our Board is commended for putting children first in every decision they make.

Congratulations again and keep up the great work!!

We Believe… Excellence, Humanization, and Pride!
