Board Professional Development
Citizens elected to the Governing Board are entrusted with the responsibility of governing district schools. The Board recognizes that its members need training that helps them understand their responsibilities, stay abreast of new developments in education, and develop boardsmanship skills.
All Board members are encouraged to participate in advanced training offered by the California School Boards Association in order to reinforce boardsmanship skills and build knowledge related to key education issues. All Board members may attend conferences for the purpose of Board development. Board business shall not be discussed at conferences so as not to violate the Brown Act open meeting laws pursuant to Government Code 54952.2.
(cf. 9230 - Orientation)
(cf. 9320 - Meetings and Notices)
Board members shall report to the Board, orally or in writing, as soon as possible on the training activities they attend, for the purpose of sharing the acquired knowledge or skills with the full Board and enlarging the benefit of the activity to the Board and district. Funds for Board development shall be budgeted annually for each Board member.
