Leadership teams go to school at KASB workshopScott Rothschild
More than 25 current or soon-to-be school board presidents, their clerks and superintendents went to school Thursday at KASB’s Board Presidents and Leadership Teams workshop in Topeka.
KASB Leadership Services staff Dr. Doug Moeckel and Sue Givens worked with the board leaders on developing a positive board culture, building a leadership team, chairing meetings, developing the all-important meeting agenda, and handling disagreements and difficult situations.
The teams learned not only from Moeckel and Givens; they also had time to share local successes and challenges with each other for additional insights.
“I recommend this workshop for folks in new leadership positions or seasoned leaders,” said Marysville USD 364 Board President Pam Dankenbring. “The high points for me were learning about how board culture can create the capacity for a positive, high-functioning board and how great goals drive the success of a district. But it really all comes down to the notion of keeping the main focus, and that is student success.”
