Start strong with the May/June Journal

The May/June issue of The Illinois School Board Journal offers key information for new school board members, and also serves as a refresher for those returning to their roles of public education governance for their local school districts.

With the best resource for newcomers being experienced school board members, the Journal asked several to share their recollections of the first year of service, and give advice to newcomers. The result is the 2019 version of “What to Expect.” The Journal has additional advice on getting started from an experienced school board member and school attorney and another piece on “Starting Right” from Larry Dirks, IASB field services director. Readers can also get a “first take” on understanding school finance.
