Online Whole Board Training
In response to board member requests, MSBA has developed a variety of online board training to help board members learn and review essential information for effective governance. Board members can view the modules independently or as a group at any time. Each module is divided into short segments to allow flexibility in viewing – either in part over time or all at once. The following are available:
• Sunshine Law
• Nepotism and Conflict of Interest
• The Basics of Student Achievement in Missouri
• Superintendent Evaluation Video Series
Each module is $75 for all 7 board members and the superintendent to have access for 90 days from the registration date. Additional participants may be added for $10 each.
Spring is the time for districts to make personnel decisions and MSBA’s Practical Personnel Law Webinar Series is a great way for superintendents and human resources directors to stay up on current law from the comfort of your office.
