Celebrating the News Blog's 1,000th post

The Illinois School Board News Blog has reached the 1,000-post milestone.

From 1943 to 2015, IASB published a monthly Newsbulletin, sharing information that members want to know and addressing the information-gathering needs and interests of board members and other school leaders. Originally a printed and mailed publication, it was later a digital publication.

In 2015, the publication was reformatted as this News Blog for more timely coverage of education issues. The Blog includes information on IASB events, services, and publications; advocacy alerts and updates on state and federal legislative issues; election information; current topics in K-12 education, board and board member development opportunities, the work of the IASB Board of Directors, and daily news headlines.

The Newsbulletin and Blog have been edited by Gary Adkins since 1987. Thanks to our readers, the 999 previous posts have garnered over 300,000 pageviews.
