Board Candidate Questionnaire – Jill Geske’s Responses (School Board)

Why are you running for the board?

I care about the students of Fall Creek School District and want to make sure we can educate our children but stay in budget.

What areas for improvement do you see in any areas under the board’s purview?

I feel that the board is doing a great job of putting the children’s education as top priority.

Presumably if someone is on a board, or wants to be on one, it’s because they want to make a positive impact on the community. What’s the biggest positive impact that you would like to see?

I would like to see better communication between the Village Board and the School Board.  I will only make Fall Creek a better place to reside and to send their children.

What specific positive changes have you individually made so far, and what others do you have planned going forward?

As a board member we don’t do “individual positive changes”.  We work together to make sure that the students are getting the best education possible, that the school stays on budget and all of the employees are being paid fairly according to other schools the same size as Fall Creek.

What distinguishes you from other sitting board members? What makes you a different kind of representative to the board that’s not already covered by any sitting board member? What do you offer that other board members do not?

I don’t feel that I stand out any more than any other board member.  I have been on the board for 9 years and have enjoyed being part of a board that truly cares about the children and the employees of the district. We all have other jobs and we can utilize our experiences with other occupations to help run the school district proficiently.

What specific questions have you raised that have created more thoughtfulness in board decisions? What were the outcomes of those questions?

Any questions that I have raised that have created more thoughtfulness have been in closed session so they will not published.

Why do you think others have decided to run for your position? What have you done, or do you have planned to address their concerns and reasons for them to be running?

I have not heard from any other candidates as to why they are running for school board so I can’t answer that.
