Student participation in D203 Board of Education meetings

High school students could have a larger role in Naperville School District 203’s board of education meetings this fall, based on a proposed policy amendment introduced Monday. 

The board had a preliminary reading of an amended policy on board member qualifications. The amendment, which will be voted on in August, entails bringing several students from Naperville Central and North into the fold.

According to D203 administrators, the goal is to amplify student voices and give a small group of representatives an opportunity to weigh in on policy issues taken up throughout the school year. Students would not vote on any agenda items and would not participate in closed-session meetings.
