If you want to go where the BOLD go, here’s how to apply

KASB BOLD (Business Operations Leadership Development), a leadership development opportunity for new superintendents (within the first two years in their position) and aspiring superintendents, is seeking applications for the 2018-2019 cohort class.

Application deadline is Sept. 14, 2018. The 2018-2019 class will be announced by Sept. 21, 2018, and the first class session is scheduled for Oct. 23 and 24.

Participants will be selected based on their current role in their district. Aspiring superintendents or new superintendents (within first couple of years) will be given first consideration. Gender, ethnicity, district size, and region of the state will also be considered to achieve a balance across these criteria.

Additional information and the application form is available online at kasb.org/BOLD.

The program focuses on the facilities and planning side of leading a school district. Those selected for the program are asked to commit to six two-day sessions throughout the 2018-2019 school year. Onsite visits and presentations center around seven key areas:

  • Building and facilities master planning;
  • Technology planning;
  • Finance strategies and planning;
  • Procurement processes;
  • School security;
  • Risk management; and
  • Human resource management.

KASB staff, experts from across the state and KASB partners lead training. Time is also devoted to class discussions and networking.
