"Having a high quality school district and great education is very important to me, and at the same time it's important to balance that by being fiscally responsible," said LeFevre said, who was elected to the board in 2005 and has served as president since 2007.
Yung will be seeking a second term. He has been secretary since 2011.
"I like being involved. I like knowing that I have an input in what's happening and I feel that my input is valuable," he said.
Anna Klimkowicz responded via email that she would be running again.
"I believe that I offer a balance to the board because of my social services background and I try to offer new ideas and ask appropriate questions," wrote Klimkowicz, who works for the Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County.
Anyone interested in running for the board must gather the signatures of at least 50 registered voters living within the school district on a petition. Candidates must be 18 years or older, U.S. citizens, registered voters and a resident of the school district for at least one year prior to the election, which takes place on Tuesday, April 9.
Petitions -- along with a statement of candidacy and a receipt from the county clerk showing a 2012 statement of economic interest has been filed -- must be submitted to David Torres, associate superintendent for business, between December 17-24.
The four-year term runs from April 9, 2013 to April 25, 2016. For more information call (847) 755-6600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
