IASB Annual Report for FY 2015 posted

The vision of the Illinois Association of School Boards is excellence in local school governance in support of quality public education. Fulfilling this vision requires a great deal of collaboration as we focus on our mission, goals, and tasks. This past fiscal year saw many transitions, but we never lost sight of who we are and where we want to go.

Inspired by and accountable to 843 member boards of education throughout the state, the IASB Board of Directors represents the essence of leadership that creates that vision. President Karen Fisher, Vice President Phil Pritzker, Immediate Past President Carolyne Brooks, Treasurer Dale Hansen, and the division directors from every corner of the state devote their time, effort, expertise, and acumen to the Association. This past year, the board adopted several changes to the Association vision and mission and embedded both in their own governance policies. The result was a detailed mission statement that outlined exactly what our members can expect from us. Our direction is clear, our mission is specific, and we are focused on delivering those services efficiently and effectively.
