This session is limited to 40 participants to ensure all participants have ample opportunity for personal interaction and customized support. This conference will take place over four days split into two sessions: September 26–27 and October 24–25. When registering, participants are agreeing to attend both the September and the October sessions.

The School Board Conference provides various examples of the school board’s role as community leaders and advocates for schools and for youth. For school boards committed to continuing their direction beyond a particular leader and those recognizing how critical it is to build community beyond the school, this conference is focused each year around the Schlechty Center’s definition of the role of the board and relevant reading that reinforces the board’s role. Participants will learn from board members with shared concerns from different districts.
