May is School Board Recognition Month in Iowa, and the 2019 theme was 'Superheroes for Public Education'. IASB sponsors School Board Recognition Month each May to honor the volunteer board members who serve on Iowa's 330 local school boards, nine area education agency boards and 15 community college boards. These dedicated education leaders are true superheroes, without the cape. They serve their community and students without compensation; donate their personal time and energy to overseeing the direction of Iowa's public education system; and they positively impact our state by ensuring our future citizens have a quality education.
We encourage school districts, AEAs and community colleges to join IASB in celebrating School Board Recognition Month.
