The Lake Forest Caucus Committee holds four public meetings throughout the year:
The Annual and Spring Meetings: are open to all registered voters of Lake Forest. These semi-annual meetings provide a “State of the Caucus” address by the President of the Lake Forest Caucus and a financial review by the Treasurer. See what we’re doing and learn more about your Lake Forest Caucus and opportunities to get more involved in the community to keep it strong, healthy and a great place live.
Open Call: is open to all registered voters of Lake Forest. The purpose of this meeting is to educate and discuss how the caucus system works, encourage the public participation and to provide a “Volunteer Profile Sheet” to citizens that wish to be considered by the Caucus for elected or appointed positions in the upcoming year.
Caucus Community Night has been renamed to Volunteers @ Heart. and is held in the early evening on a Friday at Lake Forest Sports Cars. Come to meet your Mayor, Aldermen, Ward Chairs and Committee Members and slated candidates as we hold our annual Caucus fund-raiser. Please join us and have fun with great appetizers and refreshments included in the ticket price.
All other meetings are limited to the duly elected members of the Caucus Committee and the candidates being interviewed for positions within City boards and commissions. The Caucus Committee is committed to safeguarding the confidentiality of all those Lake Forest volunteers who seek the recommendation of the Mayor. Our primary directive is to seek out qualified candidates and encourage all members of the community to serve.

At LFHS, the majority of our students took the ACT in 2016, while the SAT was not required. Only 33 LFHS students reported taking the SAT.
LFHS posted a 2016 ACT composite score of 26.4 This is a record ACT score for our top-performing school and surpasses the excellent scores achieved at LFHS over the past several years. This measure includes all students. LFHS at 26.4 is almost 6 points above the national and Illinois averages.
LFHS offers 30 AP courses, in many cases offering multiple sections to accommodate rising student demand.
In the last three years, the number of LFHS students taking AP tests has increased by 59%.
This dramatic growth of AP participation has been fostered by policies that removed prerequisites and restrictions while adding new AP courses, combined with actively encouraging and supporting our students to help them be successful at their highest level of challenge.
During this surge in AP participation, fully 95% of those taking AP tests have scored 3 or higher (considered a successful outcome). The 2016 national AP average is only 64%, so this highlights how well LFHS graduates stack up against the US college-bound competition.
Nationally, LFHS is one of only 433 school districts to achieve this.
We believe that our schools, which serve our community so well, require outstanding school boards. Your Lake Forest Caucus, which is non-partisan, has worked diligently to find, interview, vet and present a slate of outstanding candidates.
Each of these four fine volunteers:
The Annual Meeting will be held on December 7, 2016 at Gorton Community Center.
This year the caucus has been busy seeking, interviewing and selecting candidates for many of the offices including Alderman, Mayor and committee roles. Because of the large number of volunteer candidates this year, we split the annual meeting into two meetings! Please join us on December 7 for the second Annual Meeting where you will be able to meet the candidates the caucus is slating for Alderman, School Districts 67 and 115 and more.
