Kaneland seeks members for advisory committees, Kaneland Foundation

Updated 5/1/2021 12:24 AM

Kaneland Unit District 302 seeks to add members to its Citizens' Advisory Committee (CAC), Finance Advisory Committee (FAC), Facilities Planning Committee (FPC) and the Kaneland Foundation.

• The mission of the CAC is to improve Kaneland schools by advising the administration and 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 administration. The CAC also advises the administration regarding policies of the district and facilitates cooperation and communication in educational matters between the school and the community.


• The mission of the FAC 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 administration regarding them.

• The mission of the FPC is to maintain and improve the educational programs and services for Kaneland students by advising the administration regarding current facility usage and projected future site and facility needs.

• The Kaneland Foundation is a non-profit 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 directors 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, the selection committees will seek varied representation based on the Kaneland community. Administration seeks 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 the by-laws, the number of members added to the advisory committees and the Kaneland Foundation.
