Student Learning Toolbox

School board members serve to make a difference in the lives of children. Raising the bar for 21st century learning and closing achievement gaps that keep some students from success are top priorities of Iowa school boards. IASB provides guidance based on quality research on effective schools and on the board's role in student achievement. 

IASB has created several toolkits to help members do this important work. Your IASB staff consultants are a phone call or email away to assist you with using these tools. We also offer custom facilitated workshops that can help one board or a group of boards to consider their work.
