Share the Success Panels

Share the Success Panels Chosen for Conference

Twenty-nine panel sessions were chosen from more than 65 proposals submitted by school districts and related organizations for “Share the Success” presentations at the 2017 Joint Annual Conference.

This is the second year that proposals were rated by an online process. The panels were evaluated by a group of school boards members, with final judging completed on March 10.

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.
