School Board Governance Recognition
Tools: Print | Email

The "School Board Governance Recognition" program acknowledges school boards that learn and practice effective governance behaviors as identified in IASB's Foundational Principles of Effective Governance, through participation in and support for board development programs and events. The primary focus of this program is on full board development and participation rather than individual board member efforts. Effective school boards understand that excellence in local school board governance requires full board commitment to obtaining the knowledge, skills and abilities critical to good governance.

Governance Recognition applications, along with instructions and criteria, will be mailed to superintendents and board presidents in late February. Submission deadlines for the award are located on the applications. The Board Governance Recognition Award Committee will review applications in August and shortly after notify the award recipients. Boards that meet the requirements will be awarded at fall division meetings and acknowledged at the Joint Annual Conference in November. Boards may apply for the award every two years. Questions about the School Board Governance Recognition program should be directed to IASB field service directors or to the board development department at 217/528-9688, ext. 1103.
