TRAINING & EVENTS

KASB Workshops and Annual Conference

KASB offers a wide range of educational programming to keep board members and administrators informed. Each year the offerings are described in a Curriculum Guide. Participating members receive credit for attendance in a program called the “KASB Leadership Academy.” Awards are presented at the end of each fiscal year.

Please watch the KASB website calendar and watch for KASB publications for dates and costs and any updated information! Registration typically opens six weeks prior to the workshop.

Foundations of Boardsmanship 1.1: Preparing for the Year is a two-hour workshop that will cover evaluating the superintendent, processes used to monitor goals and priorities of the board, and a round table about situations or issues that have come up since coming onto the board.
