Prerequisite: None

In Governance, develop insight into to the roles and responsibilities of the governance team and focus on the core concepts of the new board member program: trusteeship and governance.

Student Learning & Achievement drives everything the district does and is constantly evolving. Discover how to meet the demand for higher academic achievement by aligning the board’s responsibilities to support student learning through policy, setting expectations for student learning; and using data to make sound decisions.

Human Resources explores the board and superintendent relationship; elements of employing the superintendent; the board’s responsibility to other personnel; establishing a framework for evaluation; and fostering a culture of accountability for sound personnel practices across the district.

In School Finance, learn how to achieve a balance between district goals and student achievement by establishing budget priorities; developing appropriate processes for budget development, adoption and revision; implementing the budget; and monitoring and auditing the district’s finances.
