In times of emergency and otherwise, IASB helps keep members informed by offering a selection of news headlines and links to public education-related stories from across Illinois and beyond. Published every weekday, Leading News includes a summary of the day's news and links to the complete articles in their respective publications.

School board members understand the importance of staying informed, not only on the major education issues of the day, but also on which topics the media is paying attention to. Leading News assists school board members in understanding the issues that may arise in their leadership roles.

Leading News offers a means to help meet the directive of the Code of Conduct for Members of School Boards which states, "I will be sufficiently informed about and prepared to act on the specific issues before the board, and remain reasonably knowledgeable about local, state, national, and global education issues."
