Learn & Earn Webinars

KSBA's  “Learn and Earn” webinar series offers insightful topics while providing school board members with easy, one-hour opportunities to earn state-mandated training. While information is presented through the lens of school board service, some topics may be pertinent to district administrators, board attorneys or other education stakeholders. All are welcome to participate.

Sessions are typically scheduled for noon – 1 p.m. (Eastern)  on the second Wednesday of each month beginning in the spring and wrapping up in the fall. 

Each webinar is available at a cost of $75 per session. Pre-registration is required. KSBA now requires that fee be paid with a credit card at the time of registration. Please be prepared to enter your payment information when you click to register. Registrations are non-refundable. If a registrant is unable to participate in the live webinar, he/she may still be able to earn credit by watching a recording of the webinar after the fact and then applying for self-study credit. Access to a recorded version of the webinar will be made available to all registrants in the days following the live event.

All Learn and Earn webinars count for 1 hour of school board training credit. See below for a summary of upcoming Learn and Earn webinar dates and topics. Check back regularly for more details, including session descriptions and registration links.

Previous 2024 Learn and Earn webinars:

2024 Legislative Session Recap: Major bills impacting boards
Wednesday, May 8
Presenter: Josh Shoulta, KSBA Director of Communications

Three keys to school safety & security: No room for complacency
Wednesday, April 10
Presenter: Dan Orman, Training Coordinator, Ky. Center for School Safety

As we shift from understanding the School Safety and Resiliency Act (2019) and SB 8 (2020) to full compliance, the responsibility for keeping a school full of kids and staff safe falls first on those inside. This webinar will revisit major points of the School Safety and Resiliency Act and its impact on everyone who works in schools and serves as a first line of defense against those who might threaten their safety and security. The presenter will talk not only about what the law requires, but why it is required. Vigilant adults, locked doors and focusing on relationship building are keys to keeping a school community safe. Following the guidelines and helping each other to do so requires “commitment over compliance,” a key concept in school safety and security.

Some topics from previous year's webinar series are now available as self-study courses.
