Governance Recognition program
entry deadline approaching

IASB's School Board Governance Recognition program acknowledges school boards that learn and practice effective governance behaviors as identified in IASB's Foundational Principles of Effective Governance, through participation in and support for board development programs and events. The primary focus of this program is on full board development and participation rather than individual board member efforts. Effective school boards understand that excellence in local school board governance requires full board commitment to obtaining the knowledge, skills, and abilities critical to good governance

The application for School Board Governance Recognition is available on IASB's Members Only website, under IASB involvement tab.

Submission deadline is August 3, 2015. The Board Governance Recognition Award Committee will review applications in August and shortly after will notify the award recipients. Boards that meet the requirements will be awarded at Fall Division Meetings and acknowledged at the Joint Annual Conference in November. Boards may apply for the award every two years.
