During the month of May, IASB sponsors School Board Recognition Month to recognize board members for their tremendous commitment to Iowa students. Even though showing recognition should be a year-round process, taking advantage of a designated month ensures these volunteers receive some of the thanks they deserve. This month is a great opportunity to build community awareness and understanding about the crucial role of your local school board.
Every year we provide personalized certificates, for each board member in your district, and posters for your school buildings/public spaces, mailed to your district in April. We also offer materials for promoting a school board recognition month campaign, from press releases to social media graphics. Keep an eye out for next year's toolkit!
