In addition to the Certified Board Member (CBM) Essential Training open to all newly elected board members, MSBA member districts have the opportunity to participate in onsite, research-based professional development workshops specifically designed for board members and superintendents. Each session lasts approximately two hours and focuses on a different topic or group of topics related to improved governance practices correlated to student achievement. Sessions include:
- Self Assessment for Student Achievement (board roles, responsibilities, work and tools)
- Performance-based Superintendent Evaluation
- Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) and Community Engagement
- School Boards and Professional Development Plans
- Open Meeting Agenda
- Data-based Decision Making
Each workshop lasts approximately 2 hours. The cost for a workshop is $150 per hour plus mileage reimbursement (not to exceed $100). Boards making an ongoing commitment to professional development, boards that are in crisis or challenge, and boards moving from good to great can satisfy those goals through a sequence of work sessions. Content can be selected from the list above or customized to meet specific board needs.
