About this blog

The Illinois School Board Newsbulletin is now the IASB News Blog.

Since 1943 the Illinois Association of School Boards has reported on information that members want to know, addressing the needs and interests of board members and other school leaders in brief, attractive packages. The  digital blog continues this tradition in a timely manner for today’s busy school leaders. Offering content tailored to school board members and administrators, the Blog carries on the Newsbulletin tradition of presenting reliable information to help readers solve problems and keep up with relevant news.

We hope you will make a habit of following the News Blog. Here’s what you can expect to see:

  • News of Association activity, including information about IASB programs, services, and governance matters
  • Supplementary news, information, and context that is relevant to you as a local school leader
  • Alerts about concerns facing Illinois public schools
  • Solutions to problems
  • A special IASB perspective and depth of understanding not available elsewhere
The News Blog is published by the Illinois Association of School Boards for member boards of education and their superintendents. The Illinois Association of School Boards, an Illinois not-for-profit corporation, is a voluntary association of local boards of education and is not affiliated with any branch of government.
