Technology is leveling the playing field. How cool is it that this students can still be with classmates, learning and growing even though she cannot physically be there!  CADET NATION knows no physical boundaries. 






IASB State Conference
This last Wednesday and Thursday, it was my honor to learn and grow with
Howard-Winneshiek School Board members Karlos McClure, Duane Bodermann, Todd Hill, Toni Johnson, and Casey Vobr along with Board Secretary and Business Manager Clint Farlinger at the Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB) state convention in Des Moines.
Board members attended trainings and workshops focused on finance, the workings of public schools and student academic achievement. 

While in Des Moines, Board President Bodermann and I toured Des Moines Public School's Central Campus http://centralcampus.dmschools.org/  Central Campus is DMPS's hub for career and technical classes. Connecting on a joint project with Howard-Winn students has great potential. Additionally Directors Hill, Bodermann, McClure and I toured athletic facilities at Bondurant-Farrar, Dallas Center-Grimes, Waukee, Van Meter and Martensdale-St. Mary's.  

Congratulations to Directors Boderman and McClure upon received IASB Boardsmanship awards. Business Manager Clint Farlinger's "the buckets of school finance" was presented to a packed, standing room only group, and the Howard-Winn / New Hampton digitally sharing of class presentation was very well received.
