Responding to today's challenges of school systems for the need for transparency, workflow efficiencies and effective leadership, the Iowa Association of School Boards has partnered with eBOARDsolutions, the provider of a unique suite of web-based tools that helps school leadership teams streamline and align their governance and leadership work. Unlike other tools that only work at the board level, eBOARD can be used at ALL levels and departments within a school district. There’s even a meetings app for the iPad that will give you quick access to your meeting agendas and guide you through your entire board packet.
IASB’s partnership with eBOARDsolutions will help districts implement cloud-based technology tools that can drive changes in the process which will then improve student success. The integrated modules within eBOARD include:
- Strategic Plan - Monitor, track, manage and report on the organization's strategic plan to all stakeholders
- Meetings - Streamline agenda preparation and enhance the effectiveness of all meetings (not just board meetings)
- Evaluation - Enhance, align and streamline governance and leadership evaluations and assessments
- Communications - Improve communications with all stakeholders
- Documents - Build an online library for easy access to important documents
Diane Sandifer (877-404-7707) from eBOARDsolutions will serve as a liaison between IASB, eBOARDsolutions and the local school districts. Diane understands the challenges faced by the local school boards and how eBOARD can be an effective governance solution. IASB believes so strongly in the functionality of this software tool, the association will be rebating a generous percentage of the subscription cost to our member districts.
"We believe eBOARD is an exemplary organizational tool that will help Iowa school leaders keep their work aligned and focused on a shared vision of the future of public education,” said Tom Downs, IASB Executive Director. “We want to assist school boards in their critical leadership responsibilities and are very excited about the potential of this partnership. IASB is using this software ourselves after researching several systems, and our board and staff are very impressed with its capabilities for streamlining processes and supporting effective governance."
