Salute Your School Board This May!

Each May IASB invites Iowans to honor and recognize school board members. This month is a designated time to show support for your local school board. The 2021 theme is "School Boards: Leading Through Uncharted Waters."

Over the past year, leadership at the board table has come with challenges and decisions no one could have anticipated. School boards have made tough choices that impact the health and safety of students, staff and the school community, while continuing to prioritize student achievement and educational equity. In a normal year, these unpaid volunteers work diligently to ensure schools provide the best education possible for Iowa’s future citizens. In 2020, they’ve persevered and led through uncharted waters to make critical decisions without even a map to navigate these challenges. Join us as we celebrate the outstanding leadership of your school board members throughout the entire month of May.
