2023 Leadership Institute Welcomes Dr. Ian Roberts

While the school year is over for students, administrators from throughout Des Moines Public Schools were in school for a day of learning and growth on Wednesday, June 7. After breakfast al fresco on the front lawn of East High – thanks to the DMPS food and nutrition team – it was then into the Ruth Ann Gaines Auditorium for the 2023 Leadership Institute. School principals and district administrators heard from interim superintendent Matt Smith, who shared a look at some highlights from the just-complete school year, and welcoming the incoming superintendent, Dr. Ian Roberts, who shared his background and why he is excited and ready to come to DMPS. Attendees also heard presentations on important topics such as safety enhancements and legal updates before breaking off in groups according to grade levels and work areas to consider plans and improvements for next school year and beyond.
