Steve and his family have been Roscoe residents since 2016. His daughters are students in the District. He was impressed with the way the District has tackled the unprecedented challenges that arose since the pandemic to ensure that students continue to receive a quality education - in contrast to schools in many parts of the country where many students have lost many of their options for many months. He was impressed with the way families have been kept informed and parents are able to make choices regarding how best to balance competing concerns regarding safety and effectiveness for their children. Parents, teachers, support staff, and administrators are all crucial to educational success and allowing the active involvement of all is important.

Steve has always valued education and is first and foremost a problem-solver. He has a background as an accountant, a lawyer, and a small business owner. He joined the Board to help the District continue to provide an excellent education for the families in the District. He is happy to be part of a remarkable community and a remarkable school district.

Scott Robinson believes in the power of education to help children develop their full human potential, and takes seriously the responsibility of being a partner in the stewardship of District 140 for the benefit of our community’s children, families, and taxpayers. He and his family moved to Rockton in 2010, and were drawn here, like many families, because of the reputation of Rockton’s schools. The quality of education that his three children have received in the district has indeed been excellent due to the hard work and dedication of our district’s teachers, support staff, administrators, and school board, as well as the support of the community. It has been especially amazing to witness the success of our district in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. As a member of the Rockton 140 Board of Education, Scott wants to help continue this tradition of excellence by always putting the best interests of our children first, while also respecting the obligation to provide value for the tax dollars that fund our schools.

Scott is an attorney for a national law firm, and also a former English teacher at Hononegah High School. He was admitted to the bar in 2003, and taught at Hononegah from 2011-2019. He also has significant training and experience in educational technology. His wife, Becky, teaches Photography, Web Design, Video, and Graphic Design at Hononegah. They have three children in District 140: two sons in 8th and 6th grades, and a daughter in kindergarten. Scott knows first hand what a difficult, yet rewarding, job it is to teach kids, and has the highest regard for great teachers and their craft. He is looking forward to using his knowledge and experience to serve the residents of our school district, and promises to work hard to maintain the educational quality they have come to expect from District 140.
