News from IASB

Summer office closings
IASB offices in Springfield and Lombard will be closed on four days in July in observance of the Association’s summer schedule and the national holiday. Both offices will be closed Friday, July 3 and the following three Fridays: July 10, 17, and 24.

IASB membership numbers
IASB is reporting new membership numbers in the wake of several school reorganizations that will take effect July 1 and one recent addition to the district membership. Four reorganizations took place in IASB’s Egyptian Division:

  • The new Spring Garden CCSD 178 combines Dodds CCSD 7 and Ina CCSD 8. 
  • The new Woodlawn SD 209 is a consolidation of Woodlawn CCSD 4 and Woodlawn CHSD 205.  
  • The new Bluford CUSD 318 formed from Bluford CCSD 114 and Webber HSD 204.
  • Nashville CCSD 49 annexed Hoyleton Cons SD 29.

The other reorganization occurred in the Illini Division:

  • Salt Fork CUSD 512 is a consolidation of Jamaica CUSD 1 and Catlin CUSD 5.

There are now 850 public school districts in Illinois. With these changes, and with the addition of Pope County CUSD 1 in Golconda (Shawnee Division), 843 districts are dues-paying members of the Illinois Association of School Boards.

IASB membership records
IASB is appealing to member school districts to help update Association membership information. Member district listings are shown on the Association’s website, and any corrections or new member updates can be sent to the IASB Records Manager at 2921 Baker Drive, Springfield 62703-5929 or sent via email to jkidd@iasb.com.
