As a collaborative district, our School Board is known as a Joint Powers Board (JPB) and is the governing body of Northwest Suburban Integration School District.  The JPB makes decisions and sets policies for the care and management over the programs and activities in the school district. The JPB’s authority includes implied and specific powers granted by the legislature.

The membership of the NWSISD JPB is comprised of one school board member from each of the member districts.  In addition, the NWSISD Executive Director serves as an ex-officio member, and an at-large representative is a member district Superintendent, who will attend on a rotating basis. Each member district school board shall fill the vacant, unexpired terms of its representatives on the NWSISD JPB as vacancies occur.
