Interested in serving on your local school board?
The Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB) provides information for community members who are interested in serving on their local school board. School board members are elected by their local communities in an election held the second Tuesday of September in odd numbered years. This will change to November of odd-numbered years in 2019.
The following toolkit can help interested citizens understand school boards in Iowa and their role, qualifications and steps to become a school board candidate, rewards of school board service and more.
As you consider running in the next school election, think about what board service means to you. You can make a difference for students, your community, and ultimately the future of Iowa. Invest in the future--serve on your local school board.
