New school board members often face a steep learning curve. This episode includes three conversations meant to help new members find their footing.
First, we talk with Bob Butler, WASB associate executive director and staff counsel, about the WASB New School Board Member Handbook.
Then we talk with two veteran board members — Gary Vose of Kettle Moraine and Larry Dux of Pewaukee — who give general advice to new members and explain their work as part of the WASB’s Peer Mentoring Program.
Finally, this page provides a good overview of basic resources for new school board members.
