All Illinois school board members must receive training in professional development leadership (P.A. 97-8) and the Open Meetings Act (P.A. 97-504).  Mandatory training will also be required after the new teacher evaluation requirements are implemented in each school district.  For additional information, see Board policy 2:120, Board Member Development.

The following table contains mandatory and non-mandatory training and development activities that were completed by each Board member.  When the training was provided by the Illinois Association of School Boards, the acronym “IASB” follows the listed activity.  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 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.
