KASB names Class of 2018 Leadership for Tomorrow

TOPEKA – The Kansas Association of School Boards is pleased to announce our Leadership for Tomorrow Class of 2018. The 26 participants were chosen through an application process on the basis of individual leadership in public education and participation in activities that promote effective governance and raise student achievement.

Through five two-day sessions held around the state, the KASB Leadership for Tomorrow program creates a greater understanding of the Kansas public education system and provides opportunities to develop leadership skills for effective governance and raising student achievement.

The program began in 2005, and in the past 13 years 221 school leaders have completed the program.

The 2018 schedule will include visits to McPherson and Twin Valley schools in March; Liberal and Hugoton schools in May; Manhattan school district in July; Wellington and Wichita schools in September; and Kansas City-area schools in late November.
