KASB’s Introduction to Boardsmanship provides an overview of knowledge needed to begin your journey of serving on a local board of education. Topics covered included advocacy, legal topics, communication, boardsmanship, finance, goals and priorities. Superintendent evaluation and how to use a systems approach to leadership are also included. This is a fast-paced introductory class intended to jumpstart your service on your local board. It will also serve as a great refersher course for veteran board members. And attending as a team – with the superintendent and fellow board member who can serve as a mentor – is an excellent way to develop shared understanding of challenges and opportunities at the local level!
