To be effective leaders, school board members must be cognizant of their legal roles and responsibilities. In this workshop, an experienced WASB attorney will provide an overview of key areas of Wisconsin law, including:
- Open meetings,
- Public records,
- Conflicts of interest, and
- A board’s power and duties.
The workshop will also provide an introduction to the Key Work of School Boards – a data-driven framework that aims to help boards achieve excellence in school governance through a road map designed to assist and support their work. Within the Key Work framework, five action areas are examined: Vision, Accountability, Policy, Community Leadership, and Relationships.
Walk away from a workshop with a greater confidence in understanding the state laws that directly impact service on a school board and the basics of school governance. The workshops will provide a foundation for new school board members to begin learning their role and serve as a helpful refresher for experienced board members.
