Annual Convention: New Board Orientation
February 15, 2018 | Hilton Head Marriott, Hilton Head Island
Newly elected or appointed school board members are faced with host of new responsibilities and expectations. From laws governing the public’s access to information to state and national education trends to local board dynamics, the learning the curve can be steep. This full-day learning opportunity provides new board members with the foundation they need to become strong leaders in their districts. Presentations cover a range of key topics, and participants have the chance to discuss issues with colleagues from around the state. The workshop takes place immediately prior to the SCSBA Annual Convention, so attendees have the opportunity to extend their professional development into the weekend.
South Carolina law mandates that all new board members attend an orientation training within one year after being elected or appointed. Participants in SCSBA New Board Orientation are in compliance with this requirement.
