Dist. 54 Candidates Address Changes Needed in Schools


Editor's Note: Four candidates are making a run for three seats on the Schaumburg Township Elementary School District 54 board in the April 13 election. Three trustees - Barbara J. Hengels, James J. Morenz and Kerry L. Waser are running along with challenger Deborah "Jill" Hill. Candidates were asked to respond to a series of questions. This is the first in a series of articles in which candidates were asked specific questions about the issues. Their responses follow each question.

What changes are needed in the district and how would you help bring those about?

Barbara J. Hengels: Ever more avenues of communication are needed so that we can let the community know what is going on in our (their) schools. We need to make sure we listen to concerns and do what is the best possible for the students.

James J. Morenz: I think that everything in the district should be considered as candidates for change. We must be constantly evaluating what we do and looking for better and better ways to serve the children and the district. The biggest change I have worked toward (is) ... a more consistent way of reporting individual school's performance - it can get awful confusing. More staff development in the administrative areas. With our focus on site-based management, new skills need to be developed and strengthened. Better ways of challenging AND rewarding our district employees' performance levels.
