The Blue Ridge Board of Education was one of 20 school boards to earn the Illinois Association of School Board 2017 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. The recognition was formally presented at the October IASB Abe Lincoln Division Meeting. In addition, the school board conference in November will have a special display to recognize the boards who were awarded this distinction.
