School board members in Michigan are preparing to deal with some of the more complex and nuanced issues they’ll be facing at the board table by participating in advanced board certification (CBA) classes. MASB is experiencing a record number of registrations for classes dealing with issues such as district safety, superintendent performance goals, board ethics and maintaining a focus on student achievement.

While these classes have always appealed to new and experienced board members, it appears that massive education reform efforts and increasingly complex dynamics in school districts are causing board members to seek additional training in related areas.

Nearly 30 different classes are being offered as part of Summer School for School Leaders, which is being held Aug. 14 – 15, 2015, at Boyne Highlands Resort. Seats are still available in most classes; however, board members are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Superintendents are encouraged to attend (free of charge with their board members). Find registration and complete event details on the MASB website.
