IASB Resolutions Committee meeting

 
On Friday, August 2 the IASB resolutions committee will meet in Bloomington-Normal to hear testimony from districts that submitted resolutions. Committee members will debate the proposals and then make a recommendation to adopt or not adopt each measure. The Resolutions Committee is comprised of one elected member from each of the Association’s 21 divisions. 

This year, 18 resolutions were submitted by local boards of education seeking to address such concerns as student and school safety, charter schools, special education funding, prevailing wage, and other important issues. The deadline for districts to submit resolutions was June 26.

Once the committee has completed its recommendations on each proposal, a “Resolutions Committee Report” will be distributed to each member district and posted on the IASB website. This report is intended to provide a summary of each measure to assist districts when deciding how to vote on the respective resolutions presented at the Delegate Assembly.

The IASB Delegate Assembly will gather at the Joint Annual Conference on Saturday, November 23 to debate and vote on proposed member resolutions. If approved by the delegates in attendance, the resolutions will be adopted as part of IASB’s official Position Statements.
