Core Training is NCSBA’s foundational sessions for new and veteran board members. Formerly called School Board 101, participants learn to strengthen their governance skills and solidify their boardsmanship foundation.
This two-day session will cover leadership, advocacy, and the required ethics training for school board members. Core Training topics include:
- Leadership Training – basic boardsmanship dos and don’ts, board/superintendent roles and responsibilities, school finance, and school board liability.
- Advocacy Training – board members’ advocacy work, a legislative update on current issues, NCSBA’s member-approved legislative agenda, and a how-to talk on effectively engaging legislators.
- School Law Training – the required ethics training for school board members, maintaining legally compliant policies for schools, and access to NC’s open meetings law and public records law videos.
