Student success is at the forefront for every board member in Iowa. A commonly recurring reason for board service, mentioned by many individuals, is that it's all about the students. Students are the reason nearly 1,900 volunteers serve on local school boards.
It's a well-known fact that school boards can, and do, influence higher student achievement levels. But how? We are pleased to announce our all-new spring event on student learning and student success. Over the two days, you will hear from prominent speakers well-known in the education field on overcoming the achievement gap and innovative learning environments; participate in engaging sessions that take concept or theory into application; and go in-depth on specific topics in 2.5 hour intensive workshops.
When you leave, you will understand how exceptional governance, with a focus on student learning, makes a difference for student success.
