Workshops

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. A “Season Pass” option allows members to send an unlimited number of participants to certain workshops throughout the year for a flat fee.
