Student board members are integral to ensuring student voice is heard and included in decisions made by local governance teams that, ultimately, impact tomorrow’s leaders. But how can the youngest members of California’s district and county leaders come to the dais prepared to ask informed questions and make crucial decisions on behalf of their fellow students, families and communities?
For the first time, CSBA is launching a virtual Student Board Member Training program for students seeking to enhance their knowledge, skills and abilities as school board members. This new program is designed to engage students and elevate their understanding of governance while serving as a school board member.
Topics include the nuances of governance, legal issues surrounding the Brown Act and meetings, California school board membership, finance, advocacy and engagement, and transition planning. Students will have opportunities to utilize new tools and templates designed to craft motions, present viewpoints and solicit community input.
Additionally, there are several virtual Student Board Member Governance Q&A and Networking events that will allow students to call in, ask questions regarding governance, advocacy and student voice, share their experiences with peers and speak with CSBA training faculty members.
