Governance Recognition program deadline approaching

IASB's School Board Governance Recognition program acknowledges school boards that learn and practice effective governance behaviors as identified by IASB's Foundation Principles of Effective Governance.

School Board Governance Recognition honors development and participation by the full board, rather than the efforts of individual board members. Boards that meet the requirements and criteria listed in
the application will be recognized for the two-year distinction. Further information and details about the program can be found in this IASB tutorial video.

Applications must be submitted by August 1, 2019

The Board Governance Recognition Award Committee will review applications shortly after submission and notify winning recipients. Boards that meet the requirements will be honored at IASB’s Fall Division Meetings.

Governance Recognition covers a two-year period from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2019. Boards that have received Governance Recognition honors should apply for renewal every two years. Past winners of the award are listed on the IASB website.
