The Oak Lawn Hometown School District 123 Board of Education is one of only 14 school districts to earn the IASB’s 2015 School Board Governance Recognition designation.
“This recognition is designed to acknowledge those school boards that have engaged in activities and modeled behaviors that lead to excellence in local school governance in support of quality public education,” according to a letter from the Illinois Association of School Boards, Executive Director Roger Eddy.
The IASB 2015 School Board Governance Recognition will be formally presented to Oak Lawn-Hometown 123's Board of Education in October and will be highlighted during a state-wide conference this November.
“This award is an indicator of our continuous work with the board's commitment to transparency, sound practices and policy. Along with our three IASB master board members, and an enthusiasm to continuing our own professional development as a board, we are honored to be presented with this award," said Board President Richard Mason during a recent meeting.
