District 93 School Board Candidates Discuss Education Quality, Budgets


Carol Stream Elementary District 93 has five candidates running in the April 9 election seeking four available seats on the school board.

The field features incumbents Vincent Ackerman and Richard Boyer as well as newcomers Sonal Amin, Scott Stone and Christopher Wagoner.

The Daily Herald recently asked all the candidates for their views on issues facing the district. Their responses to some questions are listed here; for more, visit dailyherald.com.

Q. What is your number one campaign issue?

Ackerman: The board of education needs to continue to challenge our administration to spend what is needed, reduce costs where possible and not automatically take the max tax rate that is allowed (as many taxing bodies commonly do).

Over the last two years, CCSD93 has abated millions of potential tax dollars by following these principles.

Amin: I do not have any campaign issue now.

Boyer: Needed solution to pension problem as relates to school workers.

Stone: School safety and security.

Wagoner: Did not reply.

Q. How satisfied are you that your district is preparing students for the next stage in their lives, whether it be from elementary into high school or high school into college or full-time employment? What changes, if any, do you think need to be made?

Ackerman: I am satisfied with the job the district is currently doing to prepare our students for high school. With the introduction of the 1:1 learning initiative, the district is looking forward to the preparation of students for both high school and later life by creating digital citizens that will be able to enter the working world or collegiate life.

Amin: I moved into District 93 specifically for the schools. I conducted extensive research on the school districts in the area and I am very pleased with the education my three children have obtained while enrolled in District 93 schools.

As far as making changes, I am very active in the schools as a PTA member and also in several districtwide committees. I have learned through my involvement that it is not change I am most interested in, but rather the opportunity to become more deeply involved. I love researching and educating myself on how the school system works.

I would like to play a bigger roll in the continued success of our district and see how those decisions translate into classrooms.

Boyer: The district follows up with graduated students to determine their opinion of their grammar school experience. Seldom do the responses indicate a failure to prepare students for high school. In addition the district receives feedback on achievement of former students and adjusts methods as indicated in the feedback.

Coincidently, a former student had occasion to publicly speak at a recent board meeting and in the process complimented the district for preparing him for the world after school. …
