Do you know the three questions that should be asked at every meeting? We will review the questions board members should be asking to help ensure the schools meet their missions and goals; improve student achievement; and safeguard the schools’ futures. In addition to the questions, we will be reviewing examples of available resources to help inform your board’s discussion.

You were hired and appointed as the Clerk for your Board. Your duties and responsibilities are detailed in Idaho Code and Board Policy, so now we need to keep our board and district out of the mud, so to speak. This workshop will share some behind-the-scenes facts and an abundance of useful information and strategies. This workshop is designed to help clerks gain more confidence when dealing with Open Meeting Law and their Board of Trustees.

Learn insights to help set your superintendent up for success, creating a win/win situation that benefits students, staff, and the community! School boards, sitting in trust for the community, are responsible for clarifying the district purpose by articulating district ends. District staff, led by the superintendent, are responsible for strategically planning to achieve those district ends. Boards focus on ends – superintendents focus on means. Join us at this early bird session to learn more about the roles and responsibilities of both the board and the superintendent in planning for improvement, setting clear goals and expectations, and evaluating success. Learn about the connection between continuous improvement planning and superintendent evaluations, as well as gain tools to help plan the work.

The role of a school board member is often misunderstood. Many times board members feel stifled in their ability to communicate with those they serve: Patrons, staff, and students. This workshop will focus on code, law, and best practices for communicating with the key stakeholders. Informal and formal communication are keys to our success as boards and districts or charter schools. This interactive workshop will explore the best ways to handle these interactions to maximize your effectiveness in service to your community.
