Complimentary Presearch Workshop

MASB offers school districts a complimentary training on superintendent selection upon request. This training is intended to educate board members about superintendent selection prior to their embarking on a search and to help to put all board members on common ground. This is not a sales pitch.

The district is responsible for paying related travel expenses. Consultant services are complimentary.
