Based on your board experience to date, especially over the past few years, you understand that there's never a time in which every challenge has been vanquished and every problem solved. There is too much to know and too much at stake to not have access to the latest information, laws and policies. Attend Board Member 201 and engage with other board members and experts on some of the deeper learning you necessary as you continue leading your district.

Content for this workshop will cover current challenges for board members, new developments in legislation and policy, and strategies to build or maintain strong partnerships with fellow board members and administrators. Legal, legislative and policy experts will answer your questions and provide the tools and knowledge you need to advance achievement in your district.
