Kaneland Unit District 302 is looking to add members to its Citizens' Advisory Committee, Finance Advisory Committee, Facilities Planning Committee, and the Kaneland Foundation.

The mission of the Citizens' Advisory Committee is to improve Kaneland schools by advising the administration and board of education regarding educational and other issues facing the district.


Members study and deliberate problems, issues and questions of concern to the district and report the results of their studies to the elected officials who serve on the board of education. The committee also advises the board of education regarding policies of the district and facilitates cooperation and communication in educational matters between the school and the community.

The mission of the Finance Advisory Committee is to improve the education of the children, youth and adults of the district by monitoring financial issues and trends facing the district and advising the board of education regarding them.

The mission of the Facilities Planning Committee is to maintain and improve the educational programs and services for Kaneland students by advising the board of education regarding current facility usage and projected future site and facility needs.

The Kaneland Foundation is a nonprofit organization that has contributed for decades to the educational needs of the students of Kaneland Unit District 302.

Their mission is to support academic excellence through innovation. Foundation members meet several times during the school year and host an annual golf outing held in September each year.

In preparing to add members to these committees and to the Foundation, please know that the selection committees will seek representation from the various attendance areas within the Kaneland community. They seek a cross section of opinions and educational perspectives with a general ability to work constructively with others.

By-laws of each advisory committee differ in membership numbers and length of terms. Administration will determine from said by-laws, the number of members added to the advisory committees and Kaneland Foundation.

More than 50 percent of Kaneland households have no school-aged children in them and those households should be represented on this committee. If interested in learning more about membership on the committees or the Kaneland Foundation, contact Beth Sterkel at the Kaneland District office at (630) 365-5111, ext. 71109, or beth.sterkel@kaneland.org.
