Negotiating Your Superintendent Contract in 2011
Limited Capacity seats available

With the implementation of superintendent salary caps in conjunction with the accountability regulations, the ability of a board to recruit and retain a quality superintendent has become more complex. Our goal is to provide board members with the ins and outs of negotiating a new superintendent contract that will enable the board to fairly remunerate the superintendent while maintaining their fiduciary responsibility to their community.

Where Are You Going? Engaging Your Community in Dialog and Decision Making
Limited Capacity seats available

Kingsway Regional School District took the bold step of embarking on a community-based strategic planning initiative to wake up its community to focus their resources toward a common vision.  Students, families, staff, Board and general citizenry came together through active engagement that streamlined an often cumbersome and lengthy process to produce a cost-effective strategic plan that has built a sense of community and ownership.
