Today, the district's educators and administrators are largely responsible for the education of more than 1,300 students in three local schools. School officials say District 90's students are high performers who score well on tests and are taught by quality faculty.
The district is governed by a seven-member Board of Education, who are responsible for creating, adopting and enforcing policies for the district's three schools.
The board meets twice monthly inside the Library Learning Center at Roosevelt Middle School, 7560 Oak Ave.
The board's education, personnel and finance committee meetings, as well as Committee of the Whole Meetings, take place on the first Tuesday of the month at 7pm. District business meetings take place the third Monday of the month and start at 7:30pm.

What began as a public landfill is now the site of a sprawling park with ballfields, tennis courts, green fields and…More gardens. In the 1930s, Parks Superintendent Gustav Lindberg, redesigned it, and had parts of gardens dismantled after the 1934 World's Fair in Chicago transplanted there. The gardens later turned into a "victory garden" in the World War II era, and then into a vast meadow.
Through the combined efforts of the Park District of Oak Park, Oak Park and River Forest High School and the Garden Club of Oak Park and River Forest, the garden now contains about 90 varieties of perennial plants native to the area. The 13.9-acre park, which is situated in the northwest corner of Oak Park, also features a concession stand and a playground.
