Share the Success Panels

Share the Success Panels Chosen for Conference

Twenty-eight panel sessions were chosen from 70 proposals submitted by school districts and related organizations for “Share the Success” presentations at the 2016 Joint Annual Conference.

This is the first year that panels were rated by an online process. Most of the board members chose to rate the panels from the comfort of their homes within a 10-day period, while a few still chose to travel to one of the IASB offices to complete the evaluation process on March 11.

Panel proposals were evaluated on several key points, including interest or relevance for today’s school leaders; focus on board level work rather than staff work; evidence of creativity and an innovative approach to the issue or subject; can the district’s experience be replicated by others; support evidence of the program’s “success”; and if the proposal provided a clear picture of the panel presentation using specific information.
