Daily Herald Editorial Board
Residents of Kildeer-Countryside District 96 are in a fortunate position. The school district has budget surpluses, high percentages of students meeting or exceeding state academic standards and four solid options for three open seats on the board of education. Candidates in the April 5 election are incumbents Elizabeth Dietz and John Rouleau and challengers Lauren Gordon and Richard Hazan. We endorse Dietz, owner of a property management company and an active District 96 volunteer appointed to the board last October, and Rouleau, first elected in 2007, who has a background in finance. For the third seat, we give the edge to Gordon, a longtime PTO volunteer for the district and former executive director of the Northwest Suburban Jewish Community Center. Gordon advocates for better communication between the school board and parents and says education for high-achieving students could be improved.
