Iowa City School Board members said they were unaware of the Iowa Association of School Board’s and the Urban Education Network of Iowa’s intentions to support changes in collective-bargaining rights for public employees.

School Board President Patti Fields said neither group consulted with the board, despite its membership in both organizations.

The board wants to discuss the move with legislators, board member Gayle Klouda said Wednesday.

“We are questioning how they made the decision on the stance because it didn’t happen in the usual legislative way,” she said.
