BB 9240

Bylaws of the Board

The Board, in it's discretion, may establish an annual budget to provide for activities which serve to train Board members and enhance and improve Board skills. Such activities may include state, regional, and national workshops, conferences and conventions.

As part of their job, Board members need to participate in professional development activities that help them understand their responsibilities, stay abreast of new developments in education, and learn new ways to cope effectively with the problems they confront. Suggested guidelines for attendance are annual participation in AASB Board training and attendance at a national School Boards conference during the second year of a three-year term.

Board members shall report on the development activities they attend at a regular Board meeting as soon as possible after the Board member's return. If traveling at Board expense, a written report is required.
