Board Member Certification (CBA) classes offer school board leaders a way to develop new skills, stay up-to-date on educational issues and earn recognition for development as a school board member.REGISTER NOW
Public Act 87 of 2021, Article 3, Part 2, Sections 201 and 1100, authorizes the Michigan Department of Education to reimburse local school districts for school board member training intended to develop and enhance board member knowledge of school operations and education law. MASB is an approved training program provider for a number of classes.
We often get requests from ISDs/CASBAs to offer a CBA class on site. MASB is pleased to accommodate this type of request. We will process registrations and arrange for instructors and class delivery. We ask you to provide a facility and necessary meal arrangements.
Our one stipulation is that there be a minimum of 15 participants. If there are less than 15 registrations, the ISD/CASBA must agree to pay the remaining difference up to an equivalent rate of 15 for the class to be held. Many ISDs/CASBAS have taken advantage of this arrangement allowing board members yet another opportunity to conveniently pursue their board development.
Another arrangement that local school districts may be interested in is having CBA classes provided at their site. Several districts have requested onsite CBA classes for their board members as another way to assist board members in getting the board development they need. The classes are often customized to meet the particular needs of the district. Again, we are pleased to work with districts in offering classes in this manner.
If you have questions regarding scheduling a CBA class, please contact Amy Rucker, Certification Manager and Instructional Designer:
