The Reward of Service
Serving on a school board is a challenging job that requires leadership, vision and dedication. A school board member is entrusted with one of the most important responsibilities that can be assigned to a citizen: ensuring that Iowa schools help students reach high levels of educational achievement.
Serving on a school board is a crucial aspect of grassroots democracy. The school board is a uniquely American institution that represents a continuing commitment to local citizen decision-making in education.
Experienced board members all across Iowa say that the rewards of service lie in meeting the needs of children and their communities.

"As a school board member, it is our duty to do what is best for all children. This can be challenging at best but definitely achievable. We must want all children to succeed."
