IOA Seeking to Connect School Ombuds

The International Ombuds Association has launched an effort to connect the growing number of Ombuds in K-12 education. An online community hosted by IOA hopes to provide a space for this community to connect and develop. The effort is being led by Monique Bookstein, the Ombuds for Prince William County Schools in Virginia.

Here's the full announcement:
The K-12 Ombuds field continues to steadily grow. Connecting with other K-12 Ombuds is an invaluable way to grow as a practitioner. If you are a practicing K-12 Ombuds and would like to connect, we have you covered. 

First, the IOA Online CommUnity platform provides everyone with the ability to engage with, learn from, and share resources with other Ombuds. Once in the platform, under Groups, select "Groups by IOA Sectors" and then select the "Academic: Primary & Secondary Education K/12" group. As a group, we also meet monthly via Zoom and would love to have you join us. 

To learn more about the group, please contact Monique Bookstein.
