Customized district workshops and retreats
These workshops are provided by qualified staff or consultants and customized to meet your specific board development needs. Workshops can be conducted in your district facilities or a retreat setting of your choice. You can also team up with other districts to make the most of your training budget.
In-district workshops and retreats can help you build an effective, cohesive board-superintendent team with agreed upon goals and operating principles. They are especially helpful when you have new members joining the board.
Topics typically requested include:
- Roles and responsibilities
- Developing a board operating protocol
- Board self-assessment
- Superintendent evaluation
- Conflict resolution
- Strategic planning
- Student learning and accountability
Cost: Workshops are $700 for a half day (2–4 hours) or $1000 for a full day (5–8 hours), plus mileage or other expenses. If you schedule three, half day workshops at one time, the cost goes down to $625 per session. Another way to save money is by scheduling a joint training with nearby districts.
