Joel Rabin is the founder CEO and CIO (Chief Inspiration Officer) of i2i. He has more than 20 years of data and reporting experience in higher education, public sector management, and K12 school districts. Joel earned a Ph.D. from UCLA and went on to work in two of the largest school districts in California, and then served as an Associate Superintendent in one of the most diverse districts in the country.
Throughout his career, Joel led improvement processes, data analyses, technology implementations, community task forces, and built systems that support student success. He developed a set of skills and procedures that merge the art and science of data reporting to tell compelling stories through presentations, slideshows, reports, and infographics. Joel also works with school districts to improve annual planning efforts, inform critical decisions, and most importantly increase the number of students ready for college/career.
He and his wife, Jill, live in Sacramento, California with their two children.
Fred Van Leuven is one of our partners. He began his education career as a teacher in Anaheim Union High School District, then served as a teacher, Dean of Students and Assistant Principal in Saddleback Valley Unified School District.

In 2013, Fred assumed the role of President of the Accreditation of Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC). During that time ACS WASC has aligned the accreditation cycles of elementary and middle schools with their feeder high schools with significant K-12 improvement. ACS WASC has also created a new process that allows the entire school district to become accredited. Both the alignment of feeder schools and the new District Accreditation process is being formally recognized by the California State Board and California Department of Education as a key component in the States’ new accountability system of support. Fred stepped down as the President of ACS WASC in June 2018.
