Des Moines, Iowa — Three Sheldon School Board members, along with Superintendent Robin Spears, will be among about 12-hundred school board members and superintendents from across Iowa who will be attending the Iowa Association of School Boards state convention later this week. In addition to Superintendent Robin Spears, Board Members Kecia Hickman and Mark Brown will be attending the entire convention, with Susan Rensink joining them for Wednesday’s early-bird session.
Luann Gvist is organizing the 70th annual meeting at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. Gvist says the three-day conference will feature several great keynote speakers.
Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds will be speaking at the convention on Thursday about the state of education in Iowa. A workshop on school finances will be very helpful, Gvist says, especially since the elections were just held a few weeks ago.
The convention runs Wednesday through Friday, November 18th through 20th. Learn more at the Iowa Association of School Boards website: www.ia-sb.org
