Members of the Clinton Board of Education recently completed their Level I Master Board status, a fact announced this week by the North Carolina School Boards Association.
“The NCSBA Master Board program is a knowledge- and skills-based training program that provides school boards with the opportunity to develop as a full governance team,” said Ed Dunlap, executive director of the NCSBA. “What makes Master Board unique from the Association’s other training programs is that all board members and the superintendent commit to training.”
School boards can earn two different levels of Master Board status — Master Board Level I, requiring 20 hours of training and Master Board Level II, requiring 40 hours of training.
Course topics taken by members of the Clinton school board include understanding school boards in a democracy; building our team; improving communication; working through conflict; and solving problems and making decisions.
The members of the Clinton Board of Education will be recognized at the 2013 NCSBA annual conference at the Sheraton in Greensboro during the awards ceremony slated for Nov. 19.
NCSBA was established in 1937 as an advocate for public school education. Its mission is to provide leadership and services that enable local school boards to govern effectively.
