Job Alike Groups

The concept of Job Alike Groups has been part of the UEN  since the beginning of the Network.  The impact of leadership upon issues, programs and results is basic to what the UEN is all about.  Common responsibilities and best practices are the motivators for productive interaction between and among all Job Alike Groups within the eight urban districts.  "Rediscovery of the Wheel" is not a productive nor satisfactory leadership approach and is minimized as much as possible. 

Each Job Alike Group functions independently and all are urged to stay in contact with one another, sharing concerns, directions and results. Contact is maintained through emails, small group meetings and telephone conference calls.  Video contact is an option through the Iowa Communication Network. Informal support is provided by the UEN staff.

The potential impact of this resource is significant.  The UEN is committed to this major and very important asset, recognizing it's great potential to strengthen and positively impact the delivery of support services to all students and staff within the member district.
