Idaho Superintendents Network (ISN)

The ISN is a project developed by the SDE in partnership with Boise State University's Center for School Improvement and Policy Studies to support the work of district leaders in improving outcomes for all students by focusing on the quality of instruction.

Topics Focused on Teaching and Learning

The network is made up of superintendents who work together to develop a leadership community focused on teaching and learning. They consider obstacles that may be preventing improvement in the quality of the instruction in their districts. The SDE acts as a resource and provides the necessary research, experts, and planning to bring superintendents from across the state together to discuss concerns.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Improved outcomes for students
  • Developing a sense of purpose
  • Working with stakeholders
  • Supporting districts and building level leaders
  • Analyzing teaching and learning through data

The SDE's goal is to help meet the individual needs and challenges of each district superintendent in the network.
