Professional Development

Board Member Training 

We offer in-service education to school board members through workshops and seminars. Covering a wide range of topics, the workshops are designed to assist board members and administrators in more effectively carrying out their responsibilities. We hold half-day seminars periodically throughout the state and conduct customized workshops for individual boards upon request.
