The South Beloit CUSD 320 Board of Education consists of seven elected individuals who represent the community in school district matters. School Board members are elected to four-year terms. The main function of the Board is to establish policy for South Beloit CUSD 320.

The Board of Education believes that its role is best defined by the pamphlet from IASB (Illinois Association School Boards), "Foundational Principles of Effective Governance".

The Board meets in regular session on the second Thursday of each month. Meetings begin at 6 p.m. and are held in the boardroom of the District Administration Office, 850 Hayes Avenue, South Beloit IL 61080 unless notice of a change of location or time has been made.

Special Meetings may be called by the President of the Board or by any three members of the Board. These meetings are also open to the public with the exception of those designated “executive session”.

Public Participation is an agenda item at regular School Board sessions. During this time, a citizen may address the board. (Three minute time limit per speaker.)

To address the School Board, either:

  1. Make a request in writing at least one week in advance. Requests should include purpose, name, address of the speaker and the length of time required for the presentation, which will not exceed three minutes.
  2. If no advance requests have been made a citizen may address the Board by being recognized by the Board President. Each speaker must give his / her name and address, and if representing an organization, the name of that organization.

The Board President may determine:

  • An extension of the speaker’s time
  • The relevance of the remarks
  • Whether or not a non-resident may speak.

Citizens may also contact board members via email. Please visit our School Board Members web page for information about our current school board members and their email addresses.
