By now, many school board members and school leaders know what community engagement means because they have attended workshops or panel sessions, or read about IASB’s research and professional development on this critical governance topic.
For those who haven’t or who may be new to the school board, IASB has also developed an introductory video. Available on the Association’s YouTube page, this 3:09 message is a brief overview of community engagement work as it relates to IASB’s Foundational Principles of Effective Governance.

We also encourage you to share it with others on the district leadership team. And when you are ready to explore the topic in greater detail, you can read IASB’s full report, “Connecting with the Community: the Purpose and Process of Community Engagement as part of Effective School Board Governance.”
