NJSBA held its second weekend New Board Member Orientation program of the year from Mar. 13 to Mar. 15. The program, held at the Henry Chauncey Conference Center on the campus of Educational Testing Service (ETS) in Princeton, offered a three-day series of information sessions and small-group meetings to approximately 100 board members. The program was sponsored by the Center for Advocacy and Philanthropy at ETS and was offered to newly-elected and appointed board members at no cost to local school districts.

Jesse Adams, NJSBA field service representative, spoke on how boards evaluate themselves.
Vincent DeLucia, NJSBA director of training and professional development/educator-in-residence, discussed how boards can drive student achievement in their districts.
