Learn about the New Iowa Standards for School Leaders with A New Webinar Series

NEW WEBINAR SERIES! The state of Iowa is rolling out new Iowa Standards for School Leaders (ISSL), effective July 1, and IASB is set to help. We’re offering a slate of webinars to help your board team learn about the legal requirements of superintendent evaluation and to get acquainted with the new leadership standards. We’ll also provide guidance for a sound superintendent evaluation process and considerations for goal setting for the coming year.  

The June and September webinars (Parts 1 and 2) are designed for the board-superintendent team and each will provide concrete information and suggested next steps for summer and fall decision making. One week after each webinar, we’re offering a bonus networking opportunity for board presidents to dig deeper into the shared information and related implications for board leadership. These webinars are free for IASB members and participation earns five Better Boardsmanship Award credits!
