This past fall, our board of education was one of only 33 school boards in Illinois to earn the IASB’s 2022 School Board Governance Recognition designation.
According to the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), this recognition is designed to acknowledge those boards that have engaged in activities and modeled behaviors that lead to excellence in local school governance in support of quality public education. School boards should learn and practice effective governance behaviors as identified in IASB’s Foundational Principles of Effective Governance, through participation in, and support for, board development programs and events. The primary focus is for full board development and participation rather than individual board member efforts. The work of the Antioch CCSD 34 board reveals their commitment toward excellence and focus on doing what is best for our students. Congratulations D34 Board!
Board President Mary Beth Hulting was also recognized as an Established Board Leader by the IASB. To achieve this recognition, Mary Beth had to acquire 200 points in IASB professional development by attending IASB events and learning activities. IASB recognizes school board members for individual time and effort devoted to learning and leadership activities provided by the Association and for service to the public education community. Congratulations for the recognition of your work and commitment to our students.
