Message from the executive director

Thomas E. Bertrand
Above you will read the first of what will be a regular legislative alert from your Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB).

IASB remains committed to working in concert with the other members of the Illinois Statewide Management Alliance comprised of the Illinois Association of School Administrators, the Illinois Association of School Boards, the Illinois Association of School Business Officials, and the Illinois Principals Association. IASB will balance these efforts to collaborate with the need to support positions established by our membership.

When necessary, the Association will take a clear position for or against legislation on behalf of the 846 member school boards. These positions are determined by members at the annual Delegate Assembly. IASB will communicate directly to its members the positions and the rationale for or against proposed legislation.

If at any time you have questions about or suggestions to enhance our legislative efforts, please contact any member of our government relations staff.

Thomas E. Bertrand, Ph.D.
Executive Director
