Basics of Governance

June 7, 2021

The Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) is a voluntary organization of local boards of education dedicated to strengthening the Illinois public schools through local citizen control. Although not a part of State government, IASB is organized by member school boards as a private not-for-profit corporation under the authority granted by Article 23 of the School Code. The mission of the IASB is excellence in local school governance in support of quality public education.
