The Branstad administration said a second Iowa Teacher and Principal Leadership Symposium will be held Aug. 4. The symposium's goals is to "continue the public conversation about the critical role teacher and principal leadership will play as Iowa continues to work to give students a world-class education." The symposium will be held at the FFA Enrichment Center at Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny. The first symposium was held in August 2012, and 39 school districts began implementing the program. "Already we're seeing school districts like Central Decatur and Saydel implementing innovative teacher leadership programs in their classrooms," said Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds. "We look forward to hearing about lessons learned from leaders of those districts."
