Community Consolidated School District 15 Board of Education members Peggy Babcock and Richard Bokor have been named LeaderShop Academy members by the Illinois Association of School Boards.
“This achievement exemplifies the life-long learning we hope all board members model for their students and community,” wrote Angie Peifer, IASB associate executive director for board development, in letters informing Mrs. Babock and Mr. Bokor of their achievements.
The IASB LeaderShop Academy promotes and recognizes board members’ efforts toward continuous learning and professional development. As board members work their way through the LeaderShop curriculum, they earn and maintain membership in the Academy.
Admission to the LeaderShop Academy requires completion of three LeaderShop programs, one of which must be an overview of school district governance. Academy membership is maintained by completing at least one additional program over a two-year period. Upon the completion of seven programs, members are recognized as Academy Fellows.
Mrs. Babcock and Mr. Bokor will recognized as LeaderShop Academy members at the IASB North Cook Division fall dinner meeting on September 21 in Des Plaines.
