Service Recognition Program

Many people in your community work hard to support your district and your students. IASB offers a variety of awards for sale to help your school district honor school board members and staff for their service, hard work and dedication to public education. We currently sell two customizable awards -- the Lifetime Pass and Award of Merit.

Lifetime Pass

(formerly Award of Merit Card)


Fee: $8.50

The Lifetime Pass recognizes outstanding service with lifetime access to district-sponsored activities and events. This is a great way to honor retiring school board members and school district staff, and helps continue the positive relationship between your school district and community!

The Lifetime Pass is a durable white plastic card, with black print and the IASB logo. The card includes the name of the honoree and school district and will be sent to your district for signature and dating by the board president. Please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery. 

Award of Merit Plaque

Honor your school board member or school district staff’s commitment to public education with an inscribed plaque! This award can be used for retirees, or simply to recognize their service.
