From the Desk of the IALAS President
Dear IALAS Familia,
Last year was a very exciting year for us. We were able to increase our membership by 15% and celebrated the appointment of some of our members to Superintendents and Assistant Superintendents. Several of our members were also promoted to district and building Administrative Positions. We need to continue building our faculty and administrative capacity.
I am excited to announce that the Board is making our mentoring and scholarship programs a priority for this year. It is crucial that you take advantage of our programs. Mentoring is key when we are getting ready to take on a new challenge. Please don’t miss out on the opportunity that our mentors provide to assist you in preparing for that new position you would like to take on. Our goals are to provide high quality professional development based on best practices and to provide strategies to enhance instruction and management of schools and districts.
IALAS enrollment is open now to renew your membership. Don’t forget to spread the word so that your colleagues can spread their wings for educational success. We are looking forward to another exciting year of development and empowerment of Latinx educational leaders that will take our communities to the highest educational level.
Thank you to those who continue to be members of IALAS, and those who will join our organization this year.
