2019 Conference Details

UPDATE - IASBO Credits for the 2019 Virtual Conference participants will be uploaded by IASBO during the second week of October.  


Join us for our virtual conference this year with a series of Breakout Session Webinars covering the latest information regarding legislative changes impacting schools, demonstrate new finance tools and other topics relevant to school leaders.

The in person conference previously scheduled for June 12, 2019 has been cancelled due to a training for school districts on SAMI as part of the ESSA for the same date.  This is a critical training for many schools and we don't want school leaders to miss it.  As a result, we have decided to cancel the ISFIS in person conference and repurpose the content planned through a series of Breakout Special Topic Webinars over the summer and remainder of the calendar year.  Webinars will be free for ISFIS Subscribers and $25 for non-ISFIS Subscribers.

The dates & topics for our Webinars are available on our Webinars page, with the first one to be held on Tuesday, May 28 at 2:30 pm.  A summary description along with dates and times for the webinars can be found here.  IASBO credit is available for those who attend in person and complete the polling questions.

Conference Testimonials

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 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
