This 1-day training is designed to educate individual board members on the skills and knowledge of Boardsmanship. Participants will receive seven (7) Leadership points in the CBM Program for attending this training session.
Boardsmanship is perhaps the most important virtue for school board members to possess and to constantly exhibit to the community. The public must be assured of each board member’s willingness to assume and perform all roles/responsibilities associated with the position. By earning and preserving the public’s trust and respect, a school board can create and sustain a climate for excellence and collaboration for public education. To earn the confidence and to achieve the support of the public, board members are obligated to attain a high level of boardsmanship skills and knowledge.
