New Year, New Website, New Tools for Your Success - Time to Schedule Your 2017 IEBC Workshop - Welcome to Our New Partners

New Year, New Website, New Tools For Your Success         
IEBC offers a fresh new website to energize your efforts in 2017. While it contains all of the valuable information you have come to rely on, it offers numerous advantages over the previous edition, including:
  • Improved organization of our resources
  • Improved access through user-friendly typography, spacing, and other design elements
  • Improved, up-to-date design and navigation
Anyone who has managed a website redesign knows it is a significant undertaking. Why did IEBC believe it was necessary?
IEBC's accumulation of knowledge has expanded since its founding, with new approaches and programs to help you address your challenges in improving student success. Our new website reflects what IEBC has learned about the "what" and "how" of using data and collaboration. We have better organized and synthesized these resources to find, follow and implement them in your own programs.  
Based on input from users, staff, and the board of directors, IEBC determined what changes would be most beneficial as you pursue your own collaborative initiatives to improve education. We strive to be a convenient one-stop resource which can provide you with important tools to move your initiatives forward. We help you not only locate information quickly and efficiently, but give you the ability to identify how IEBC can best serve your efforts to become self-sufficient through our resources.

IEBC's professionals are eager to work with you to create workshops, programs, and partnerships. The website is the first step in forging connections with us and our resources.    
IEBC's website address is the same, Please bookmark it for convenient access.
