Mrs. Ursula Sedlak
Board of Education President
Ursula Sedlak and her husband, Brian, have lived in Northbrook for 22 years. Their two children attended Wescott and Maple. One now attends Glenbrook North High School and the other is in college.
She received her B.S. in Accounting from Northeastern Illinois University. She worked as a General Manager for a building products company for 14 years and is now a stay-at-home mother. She is the former President of the PTO for Wescott, after previously serving on the PTO Upper and Lower Boards, and has volunteered her time at Wescott and Maple. In addition, she was a Co-Den Leader of Cub Scouts in Pack 182 and has served as a Girl Scout Leader. Currently, she volunteers her time as a District 30 School Board Member and works with the North Suburban Prom Fashion Show Committee for Glenbrook North High School.
Ursula has served on the District 30 School Board since being elected in 2013. As a member of the Board of Education, Ursula has served on various committees including the Policy Committee, Principal Search Committee, and Superintendent Search Committee. She currently serves on the Building & Grounds Committee, Parent Support Committee, Citizens’ Curriculum Advisory Committee, Character Counts Committee, and the ED-RED Committee.
The knowledge and experience that Ursula has gained from working as a School Board Member, PTO President, and by being avidly involved in school initiatives give her a unique perspective on District 30. Ursula believes in the strength and commitment of District 30 and in doing what is best for all students today and in the future. She also believes that there is no better way to tackle a problem than by listening, building consensus and then everyone contributing to achieving a common goal. Ursula has been endorsed by the District 30 Caucus for a second time and will use her experience to serve the students, residents, and teachers in District 30 as a member of the School Board for a second term.
Ursula has completed all required training and was reelected in April 2017.
