Now that the election of 2014 is over, new and veteran school board members are signing up for the final major board training opportunity of the year – the KSBA Winter Symposium, Friday, Dec. 5 and Saturday, Dec. 6 at the Marriott East off Hurstbourne Lane in Louisville.
More than two dozen topical seminars are on the agenda. All of the mandated courses for incumbent board members – superintendent evaluation, finance and ethics – will be offered. One finance course Friday is now closed to registration (Talking about School Finance to a Non-Financial Audience) but two more school finances courses remain open. On Saturday, finance, ethics and superintendent evaluation seminars will be offered.
Additionally, a special track of classes represents a “boot camp” for newly elected board members, running Friday and Saturday.
