Governance Recognition deadline nears

The Aug. 3 deadline is fast approaching for boards to file an application in IASB’s School Board Governance Recognition program, which recognizes boards that learn and practice effective governance.

Boards that meet the requirements receive awards at upcoming fall division meetings for practicing the governance behaviors identified in the Association’s Foundational Principles of Effective Governance, and for participating in IASB programs and activities. The program’s main focus is on full board development and participation rather than individual board member efforts.

An application form and checklist on completing it are now available for download here. Additional information and details can also be found in an online tutorial video.

Application forms can be obtained here; a YouTube online tutorial video offers details.
 Questions about the School Board Governance Recognition program should be directed to Peggy Goone at extension 1103 or by email at: pgoone@iasb.com.
