We will also cover best practices for maintaining a balance between managing and governing when it comes to those individuals that work with our kids.
Charter boards present a unique focus when it comes to governance vs. management. The role is different than that of a traditional district and involves more relationships and stakeholders.

With the regulations from the Department of Education which required new updates to policy and procedure regarding Title IX and sexual harassment, this is the perfect time for every board member to delve into this complex landscape and their role within it. Often when you hear Title IX you think about sports and teams, but here you will learn Title IX’s important impact on the handling of reports of sexual harassment. Learn all about what you as a board and district/school need to do to protect yourself, your students, and staff.
The role of the clerk, as member of the governing team, is often misunderstood and the clerk’s abilities are often not utilized to their fullest. This is a time for us to find the right fit.
