Best Practices: Transparency in Board Governance to Support Student Success

Type: In-Person

Cost: $300

Credit Hours: 6 credit hours

Description:
School Board service is unlike any other elected office, and many people do not understand what it means to be a School Board member or part of a Governance Team. Transparency in all types of governance is not only important in today’s society – it is expected and valued. Hear from this year’s three GSBA Governance Teams of the Year and learn tips on successfully demonstrating research-based Best Practices in your Governance Teamwork. From clearly defined mission, vision, and beliefs to active community engagement, student-focused policies, staff support, parent involvement, and good fiscal stewardship, use the tools in your district toolbox to remove the mystery around how good governance can support student success! Share your best practices with fellow Board Members and Superintendents and begin to create pathways to move forward and become the best governance team for your district!

Support Staff Pre-Conference Workshop

Type: In-Person

Cost: $225

Credit Hours: No credit hours

Description: In the old days, support staff had limited responsibilities and could focus on one task at a time. No more! Today’s admin typically has not only routine daily tasks, but also undertakes special projects, managerial responsibilities, and teamwork. As you know, these issues can significantly impact our professional and personal lives, and it is essential to have effective strategies in place to manage them effectively. This workshop is specifically designed for central office support staff personnel. It will be an opportunity to share ideas, experiences, and best practices, and to learn from each other.
