I am running for a seat on the District 95 Board of Education because I believe that a high quality public education is the cornerstone of a successful, thriving community. I believe that this is best achieved when the board of education, the school administration, the faculty, the staff, the students’ parents and guardians all work together for the benefit of the students.

Currently, I have two children enrolled in the district’s schools. I have one child who has reaped the benefits of the great education provided by the wonderful faculty and administration. My family has resided in Brookfield for the last 16 years. I am deeply invested in our school district and our community.

As a member of the board, I would work to ensure that the curriculum presented to our students is based upon science and evidence. I will use my position to make sure that the district provides a safe and secure learning environment for all of its students, regardless of their race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or ancestry.

I would strive for the district to continue to expand its use of technology in and out of the classroom. I want to work with the board to see to the implementation of a full-day kindergarten program and the growth of STEM-focused classes. 

I will work diligently to help ensure that our schools continue with their excellent tradition of success. This includes making sure that our students have the teachers and resources necessary to grow and meet the ever-changing metrics facing them.

It is my desire to work to help oversee the construction and renovation of the schools in the district following the successful passage of the bond referendum. I believe that the passage of the referendum is crucial to the health and success of the district.

It is my goal to further enhance the district’s relationships with Riverside-Brookfield High School, the village of La Grange Park and the village of Brookfield. Moreover, I believe that it is necessary for a school board to transparently serve all of the interested parties in the district. 

The success of our schools benefits all of us. Strong schools help grow communities, increase property values and contribute to a higher quality of life. I want my children to have the best quality public education available to them. I want this for your children, too. I want this for all the children of our community.

When you vote during this election, I ask for your support. Vote for Scott E. Encher for the District 95 Board of Education.
