May is Board Appreciation Month

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.

We are #PublicSchoolProud and invite board members to join us in thanking district staff working through the COVID-19 crisis:

35,537 Educators for innovating to provide online learning and supports for students.

2,212 Food service staff for providing meals for students and families.

1,209 Transportation staff for delivering meals to students and families.

263 Superintendents and 1,144 principals for providing excellent leadership.

3,354 Central office staff for managing day-to-day operations.

3,873 Operations/maintenance staff for ensuring buildings and facilities are safe, clean and sanitized.
