    Identifying, Recruiting, and Mentoring Future School Board Members 07/25/2024

    A responsibility of every current school board is to ensure future boards are ready to lead, so the work of governing education in your community is achieved with continuity and effectiveness. Identifying, recruiting, and mentoring future board members is an important part of the board’s work.

Open Meetings Act Reminder: For those boards that choose to attend IASB’s online training together in-person or virtually, a reminder that the Open Meetings Act (5 ILCS 120/) requires school boards to discuss district business only at properly noticed board meetings. Other than during a properly noticed board meeting, a majority or more of a Board-quorum may not engage in contemporaneous interactive communication to discuss district business during any training or other event, whether in person or electronically.
