  • Using communication tools to provide insight and drive support for public education in the community.
  • Being responsible for ensuring effective communication between all board members and within the school community.
  • Being accountable for opening and maintaining clear channels of communication between schools and the community as a fundamental building block to developing and maintaining public trust and support.

Program Information The programs will take place on Wednesday, August 1, from 6:30 – 9 p.m. (registration beginning at 6 p.m.) at three regional locations, and costs $50 per person. A light dinner will be served. The Regional Leadership Training program offers 1 Board Member Academy credit.
