July Summer Schedule
IASB offices in Springfield and Lombard will be closed and remote work paused on four Fridays in July as IASB observes its summer schedule. This downtime begins on July 3 in observance of Independence Day and recurs on July 10, 17, and 24.
2020 Resolutions Deadline
There is still time for local boards of education to submit resolutions for consideration by the 2020 IASB Delegate Assembly. IASB member school boards have until Wednesday, June 24 to submit resolutions. Proposals can be offered as new IASB resolutions, amendments to existing position statements, reaffirmations of existing positions, or as new belief statements.
The IASB Resolutions Committee, consisting of one elected member from each of the 21 Association divisions, will meet in early August to review the submitted proposals and recommend either “to adopt” or “not adopt” the resolutions. Districts proposing resolutions must have at least one board member attend the committee meeting to speak to their proposal.

Exhibition of Educational Environments Nominations
The annual Invitational Exhibition of Educational Environments (EEE), sponsored by the IASB Service Associates, is accepting nominations for outstanding school design projects. All projects that are submitted for the school design competition must be completed in time for the start of school in the fall of 2020. Completed forms and associated fees for each project must be received in the IASB Springfield office by July 13, with preliminary materials due by August 3.
