Celebrate Your District Staff With Our Public School Proud Toolkit

Since 2007, IASB has led the charge in celebrating school board members each May. After 13 years focused on recognizing board members, we’re flipping the script and providing school boards with ways to thank educators, administrators and district staff for their herculean efforts. In the midst of a global crisis, Iowa public schools are continuing to teach, feed and meet the needs for K-12 students—93.7% of students enrolled in school statewide.

The Public School Proud toolkit includes resources to celebrate district staff, such as an infographic, social media graphics, cover photos and a logo graphic to send to local media.
