The 85th annual conference of the Illinois Association of School Boards, Illinois Association of School Administrators, and the Illinois Association of School Business Officials drew nearly 10,000 members and guests. Five Board members and three administrators have returned from the state’s largest school management conference, where they met with thousands of Illinois school board members and other education leaders from around the state.
This conference provides knowledge and insight that can directly aid our district. New management ideas, a better understanding of state and federal education laws, and creative solutions to common school issues are just a few of the benefits the conference provides. This conference brings together the various components of school leadership and provides an opportunity to hear new perspectives on the challenges all Illinois schools are faced with. It really is a one-stop-shop for profession development and learning.
