Our IACS January 2019 Newsletter is out! There are a few events to pencil in on your calendar and we have an overview on the legislature and our areas of focus for the year!
Every year, current and prospective IACS member schools gather to network, learn, vote on IACS business, and encourage each other at the IACS Annual Membership Meeting.
This meeting is open to school administrators, board members, and key staff as well as representatives from partner organizations and school choice coalition members.
This year’s Annual Meeting will be held at the same location as last year (Fox Creek Center in West Des Moines) on Wednesday, November 1 from 9AM to 2PM.
Lunch is provided! Please RSVP by clicking here and letting us know your school’s name and who is coming. Please RSVP by October 25th.
Last year we celebrated the removal of the sunset provision on our independent accreditation legislation. We also spoke of the need to take a number of things IACS has done to the next level and begin looking to the future. We’ll be giving an update on that as well as covering a number of topics yet to be announced. More details coming soon!
Please RSVP today using the contact form on our website or by replying to your email invitation! We can’t wait to see you!

One of our top priorities during the upcoming legislative session is to encourage passage of a flexible Education Savings Account (ESA) program in Iowa. In preparation for the session, our partners at Iowa Alliance for Choice in Education are offering 30-minute “Legislative Kickoff” webinars at two convenient times – Tuesday, Jan. 10 at noon and Thursday, Jan. 12 at 6:30 p.m.
The webinars will:
- present a refresher on the legislative process,
- discuss plans for the upcoming legislative session, and
- describe specific ways you can actively promote the ESA effort in your local communities.
The live webinars will only be available through viewing parties at Christian or other private schools throughout Iowa, although recordings will be available to individuals later. Check with your local school to see if they’re hosting the webinar.
