Conference Agenda and Session Descriptions
As a new board member learning Iowa School Finance is difficult. In going to the ISFIS Conference, I was able to gain information that I could understand and apply to these difficult times in my school district. I attended many interesting meetings that put my decision making for my school easier and I can communicate this to the public of the school district so they too understand. I highly recommend it to all school board members and especially new members of school boards. I felt like I gained a lot by attending and will do so again. - Cathy Carlson, CAL CSD
Continually educating yourself with the most up to date information is critical when making complex and difficult decision at the board table. Attending the 2016 ISFIS Conference provided an excellent opportunity learn from some of the most well respected individuals in the education field. The wealth of knowledge gleaned from hearing the latest legislative update, learning about the new assessments, networking with school district officials from around the state and chatting with a variety of vendors was well worth the early morning drive from Charles City to Ankeny. - Jason Walker, Charles City CSD
