The Idaho School Boards Association (ISBA) is a non-profit, service organization providing policy services, legislative advocacy, leadership support and quality, cost-efficient board training to association members.

Championing Education Since 1942

The Summer Leadership Institute is offered to all ISBA members. This is a great learning opportunity for new and experienced board members as well as the district leadership team. This year’s Professional Development workshops include Board Operations & Training, Conducting a Good Meeting (Effective Meetings, Open Meeting Laws, Agendas), The Board & the Budget, Card Check, Elections, and Educate vs. Advocate.

This year’s all new SLI will also tackle the following questions:

* What data does the state collect?
* How can data drive your board?
* What questions should board members ask about data?
* What are SWIP, CIP, Literacy Intervention Plans, and College and Career Advising and Mentoring Plans?
* How will changes in Open Meeting Law impact your work on the board?
* What guidelines should I follow when it comes time to run a levy?
* What should we, as board members, work for in our meetings?
* How can we have more effective meetings and impact student achievement?
* What changes have been made when it comes to negotiations?
* How can I help our Board have the best agenda possible?

Presenters from the State Department of Education are coming with us to help review the data every board member should know.
