 A committee of school board members from IASB divisions throughout the state evaluated and selected the panel presentations. The committee evaluated the proposals on key criteria, including
  • Interest or relevance for board members;
  • Creativity and innovation;
  • Emphasis on board work rather than staff work;
  • Documented evidence to support program success; and
  • Ability to be replicated by other school districts in Illinois.
All “Share the Success” panels will be presented at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago from November 19-21, 2021.
