IASB School Board Governance Recognition applications are available for 2024.

The School Board Governance Recognition program acknowledges local boards of education that practice effective governance as outlined by IASB's Foundational Principles of Effective Governance. The focus of Governance Recognition is on full board development and participation.

The recognition covers a two-year period from July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2024. Once recognition is received, boards may apply for renewal every two years. Boards that earned the honor in 2023 may reapply in 2025.

School Board Governance Recognition highlights how quality governance by district leadership teams is making a positive impact for students, staff, and the community. The application includes a section for the district to tell its story about programs and projects that are improving outcomes for their students. The program offers a chance to show how continuous learning, both by individual board members and the full board team, has improved the district's leadership and governance.

The process to complete the application and submit the required materials can be done online. A preview of the application is also available to assist in the submission process. The deadline for boards to submit completed applications is July 1.

The School Board Governance Recognition Committee, composed of IASB staff, will review all applications. Haylie Noltensmeier will notify district school boards that have earned the recognition.

Past Governance Recognition winners can be viewed on the IASB website.
