Your success depends on your ability to work with the rest of the board and the superintendent. School Board work is a group effort. This training will focus on board and board member roles and responsibilities, and how boards in high functioning districts can make a positive impact on student learning. Specifically, this workshop will help you to:

  • Identify the role and work of the school board.
  • Distinguish board work from that of the superintendent and staff.
  • Understand how each member relates to the full board.
  • Discuss effective board and board member best practices.
Upon successful completion of this course, the participant will be prompted to print course certificate; and then submit it to the school district.
It is recommended that every newly-elected or appointed school board complete this training within 90 days of taking the oath of office.

Successful completion of this course will count toward five Board Leader Recognition Points.
