From the ED 7.31.14

Dear Colleagues,

For a number of months now I have been talking with schools about the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) requirements. I have compiled some information from a variety of sources and written a brief article which can be found here. I hope this is helpful.

As we approach the end of July, school openings are right around the corner. I must say that I miss this part of the school year a great deal. Meeting new families, especially new children, as well as new faculty and staff is an exciting aspect of the independent school culture.

Along with the opening of school, August also means the beginning of ‘survey season’. This year with the cooperation of nearly 30 associations across the country we are making this easier for you to enter data and benchmark your data with your peer schools. NAIS opens DASL ( on August 4th for you to verify your user lists and the associations to which you belong.  There will be no separate MISBO (or SAIS) survey this year. In fact most states in our region are participating as well. You will enter your data into DASL and this will include our MISBO specific questions. All data entered for the past 3 years has been uploaded into DASL to provide historical perspectives and trends. You do not need to be a member of NAIS to participate. Take a look – let me know if you have any questions.

As schools open, MISBO staff will be traveling around the region and visiting schools. Jay Danielson, Director of Vendor Relations is the MISBO expert on all things related to purchasing. Jay is available to help you by phone or email anytime. Additionally, he will be traveling to FL, NC, and GA schools this fall. Let him know if you would like him to visit and show you how to derive greater value from your MISBO membership. Jay can be reached at or 404.921.3813.
