The New School Board Member Academy program is designed to assist newly elected school board members in the transition from private citizen to public official. Though differences in political philosophy, education, experience, and backgrounds exist among members of a board, new board members are expected to participate with and contribute to the governance team rapidly and meaningfully. With the increasing demand for educational excellence and fiscal accountability, the responsibilities of school boards are more complex than ever before. FSBA’s training sessions include critical information and resources to help new board members become effective board members quickly.
