Foundations of Boardsmanship training is useful for any board of education member - newly elected, just appointed or veteran. And attending as a team - with the superintendent and a 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. Topics include (1) establishing the vision for the district; (2) setting priorities and goals; (3) creating policies; (4) hiring and evaluating the superintendent of schools; (5) holding the superintendent accountable for accomplishing district goals; and (6) helping build support for public education.</p>

KESA accredits at the district level to create systemic change within and among school buildings across the district. Systems need to redesign and pursue a continuous improvement process at both the district and school levels. The School Redesign Project at the Kansas State Department of Education and KESA work together to create system changes to support the State Board Outcomes.</p>
