The Master Board Program, governance team training for the School Board and Superintendent, is designed to strengthen the leadership team’s ability to work effectively, efficiently, and collectively as a governance body while maintaining a focus on student achievement and factors contributing to the success of schools. Opportunities are provided for the team to discuss and improve or enhance those important interpersonal issues which are essential to team functioning.
This leadership curriculum is designed to offer meaningful learning sessions concentrating on student achievement through the five components of the FSBA Governance Model. Some of the skills, knowledge, processes, and concepts that are addressed in the leadership curriculum include: supporting student achievement, consensus building, developing trust, conflict resolution, leadership and communication styles, stages of team development, perspective –taking, roles and responsibilities, district culture, and problem-solving.
2021-2022 Modules will be focused on Enhancing District Culture and Communication, Gaining the Trust Edge, and Effective Governance. For boards that did not participate in the 2019-2020 Master Board Program, the EQ and Protocol and Procedure Modules are also available.
If a majority of your board and superintendent are interested in participating, click here to contact Tina Pinkoson. She will then send you an Intent to Participate form which will need to be returned no later than March 1, 2021.
