From January 19 – 21, 2022, school board members and school administrators from around the state will gather in Milwaukee for the annual Wisconsin State Education Convention, hosted by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators, and Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials. The Education Convention offers school leaders opportunities to learn from peers and national experts on a variety of topics key to running an effective school district including school finance, school laws, equity and access, and social and emotional learning.

Continued education is a key element of the leadership philosophy shared by the Howard-Suamico School Board and HSSD Administration. The four HSSD school board members and three members of the administrative team attending are grateful for the chance to learn in person this year.

In addition to attending and learning, school leaders can apply to lead a session teaching their peers. In the past, HSSD board members and administrators have had the privilege of sharing the story of our district in this way. This year, our superintendent Damain LaCroix will share how our community has strived for unity over the past year, leading to the successful passage of two referendums and high staff satisfaction rates during a period of great political and social unrest.

The annual State Education Convention is just one way the Howard-Suamico School Board lives out its mission: to enact policies and allocate resources to develop all students’ full academic potential and to promote their social and emotional growth.
