Westmoreland School Board members collaborate with fellow education leaders at VSBA’s annual convention

Westmoreland County Public School Board members Iris Lane, Daniel Wallace, Coralynn Wise, and Karen Jackson joined Dr. Rebecca Lowry, Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent, Cathy Rice at the Virginia School Boards Association’s Annual Convention in Williamsburg last week.

 

The convention focused on providing school divisions with the insight, tools and knowledge needed to survive the ongoing budget cuts inflicted on Virginia’s public education system.  “School board members are being faced with the most difficult fiscal decisions ever seen during our time on the board,” said Dr. Rebecca Lowry.  “Having the chance to network with others from across the state, hear about what other schools are doing to survive this economic crisis and learn from experts in the education community is a priceless opportunity. We are not the only ones struggling, and by collaborating and learning from others we have a better chance of minimizing the impacts of these horrific cuts to education.”

Approximately 1,000 school governance leaders attended the 2013 VSBA Annual Convention, participating in more than 50 workshops, clinics and critical issues sessions focused on topics such as boardsmanship, developing local capacity, technology integration, school law issues, best practices, STEM, advocacy, school improvement, educational trends, and energy/sustainability practices.

 “I am eager to share what I learned at the VSBA Convention this year,” said Iris Lane, “The convention is a great investment for our community because it allows our board to continue learning about nationwide and statewide trends, meet and learn from key policy officials, and bring back new best management practices for our schools that will improve our students’ education.”
