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 a national holiday. Both offices will be closed for the national holiday Wednesday, July 4, as well as on Thursday, July 5, and Friday, July 6.  The offices also will be closed the following Friday, July 13, for IASB’s summer schedule.

IASB membership at high level

IASB is reporting historically high membership numbers at the close of the 2018 fiscal year. With the addition this year of Edwardsville CUSD 7, located in IASB’s Southwestern Division, 846 school districts are dues-paying members of the Association. There are just four non-member districts in the state.

The current 99.5 percent membership ratio is the highest in IASB’s 105-year history.

IASB membership records

IASB is reminding member school districts to update their Association membership information. Member district listings are shown on IASB’s member database, and any corrections or new member updates can be made to the district roster on the member database.

Those making the roster updates can follow the step-by-step instructions and a quick video that walks users through the process.  Other member database instructions are also posted to assist board members, superintendents, and PRESS subscribers in using the system to its full potential.
