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 the Board member. When the training was provided by the Illinois Association of school Boards, the acronym “IASB” follows the listed activity.
