October issue of KASB School Board Review is available

Articles on education equity, the effect of social media on our students, the school bond environment, KASB’s upcoming annual conference and more are featured in the October issue of School Board Review, which is available online here.

This month’s publication includes the final installment of KASB Associate Executive Director of Advocacy and Communications Mark Tallman’s analysis of equity in student success. KASB Executive Director John Heim writes about how young people today face challenges their parents didn’t — namely that their exploits are recorded forever in the digital world.

KASB’s Rob Gilligan, government relations specialist, analyzes opportunities to reinvest in school infrastructure, and KASB President Shannon Kimball encourages readers to take advantage of KASB’s numerous leaning opportunities, including the 2019 KASB Annual Conference in December in Wichita.

The October School Board Review also features articles on the conference’s two keynote speakers — Tim Hodges, senior researcher with Gallup, who will provide insights into what key stakeholders think about public education, and Chad Foster, who will share his inspirational journey as a blind man who becomes a leading business and computer technology guru.

School Board Review also introduces KASB President-Elect Designee candidate Brad Bergsma, a member of the Goodland USD 352 board, and the new class for KASB BOLD.

In addition, the issue features more information on KASB’s new member portal and legal insights that are sure to help local boards.

As always, please share with us what you think of our expanded School Board Review and send any story ideas or submissions to Communications Editor Scott Rothschild at srothschild@kasb.org.
