Thank You School Board Members!
May is Iowa School Board Recognition Month

The Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB) sponsors School Board Recognition Month in May as a way to recognize board members for their tremendous commitment to Iowa students.

Even though showing recognition should be a year-round process, taking advantage of a designated month ensures these volunteers receive the thanks they deserve for the countless hours they contribute each year leading their districts. 

The time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours school board members spend leading their districts. They also attend seminars and training sessions, are involved in community activities and spend many hours in the schools and at extracurricular events.

Board members have knowledge in several key areas, including leadership, school improvement, school finance, advocacy and more, while keeping student achievement as their primary focus.
