UEN Associate Membership Criteria


Bylaws governing the Urban Education Network of Iowa (UEN) provide for Associate Membership. UEN Associate Membership is available to Iowa public school districts with characteristics similar to those of the eight UEN districts, e.g., size, demographics, etc.


UEN Associate Membership is available to districts with 5,000 or more students, and districts with 3,000 students combined with 40% or more of the student population identified as free/reduced price.


Please note that UEN Associate Membership is NOT to be considered in-lieu-of membership in other organizations serving school districts and administrators, e.g., IASB; SAI. The UEN works closely with these and other organizations on behalf of all students.


Associate Membership would entitle district participation in lobbying efforts, including UEN analysis of legislation; distribution to board members and superintendent of IALNS legislative reports (to which UEN subscribes), and UEN Day at the Capitol (each district is scheduled for one day).  Also, Associate Member districts are invited to participate in the UEN Annual Meeting (scheduled every November); and participate in UEN Job-Alike meetings. Job-Alike meetings are scheduled periodically for those staff members with the same or similar performance responsibilities. These include personnel working with: Curriculum/Assessment; Early Childhood/Day Care; Professional Development; Human Resources; Technology; Communications/Community Services and others. Meetings of these groups are generally held in Des Moines.
