Agenda (same in all locations)

6 pm: Dinner
6:30-8:30 pm: Legal Roles and Responsibilities of School Boards

To be effective leaders, school board members must be cognizant of their legal roles and responsibilities. In this workshop, an experienced WASB school attorney will take a deeper dive into the key areas of Wisconsin law, including:

• Open meetings,
• Public records,
• Conflicts of interest, and
• A board’s power and duties.

Participants will gain a greater confidence in understanding the state and federal laws that directly impact service on a school board and how the implementation of those laws influences effective board governance.

The workshops will provide a foundation for new school board members to begin learning their role and serve as a helpful refresher for experienced board members.

Presenter: WASB Staff Attorney
