Board Leadership Training
Leadership Training is a program first required by the Education Reform Act. Pursuant to Section 10-16a of the School Code, all school board members elected or appointed after the Act’s effective date, June 13, 2011, must receive training on specific topics. Of course, longer-serving members may also find the training useful. Board members newly elected on April 7, 2015, must receive leadership training within one year of taking office.
Hauser Izzo will provide training in the general areas of (a) Education and Labor; (b) Financial Oversight and Accountability; and (c) Fiduciary Responsibilities of School Board Members, including a comprehensive overview of issues board members are likely to encounter.
