Role of the Board President
Limited Capacity seats available

Being the Board President can be a challenging position.  A board president must balance the needs of all to be heard with the need to use the board’s time efficiently and effectively.  Whether the issue is personnel, a divided board, or public participation, the board president’s leadership can help guide the board through these difficult situations. 

Using scenarios brought by both the presenters and those in attendance, the attendees will be given legal and practical information to navigate through the challenges they face.  The roles and responsibilities of the Board President before, during and after the board meeting along with the Board President’s relationship with fellow board members and the administration will all be part of this discussion.

Orienting Your New Superintendent: Transition Planning
Limited Capacity seats available

You and your board worked tirelessly to paper screen resumes, interview candidates, check references, and negotiate a contract to secure the new superintendent to your district.  Your board is filled with optimism that is only matched by the hope that your choice to lead the district succeeds.  This action lab will help to improve the chance that your new superintendent begins his/her career with the tools to be successful.  Board members will have the opportunity to develop a transition plan that will help the new leader navigate through the unique waters of your community.  This session will be led by an experienced superintendent who will share his transition plan and facilitate the process of developing a transition plan to meet the needs of your district.
