A Message to IASB Members from the Executive Director, March 23, 2020

With the extension of statewide school closures, school leadership teams continue to face a changing landscape and myriad of challenges.

As conditions change rapidly with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, school boards may find it increasingly difficult to secure a quorum necessary to make important decisions in a timely fashion. Boards may also need to suspend certain policies in order to give the superintendent the ability to quickly respond to these changing conditions.

Here is a sample resolution, Emergency Suspension of Policy Due to COVID-19 Pandemic, that you may wish to consider for adoption after review with the board's attorney.

IASB continues to serve its members throughout this time. Feel free to reach out to IASB staff by email to let us know how we can assist you in the days and weeks ahead.

Best wishes,

Thomas E. Bertrand, Ph.D.
