Board Member Development Opportunities

In order to facilitate inservice training for Board members, the following procedures will apply:

  1. All Board members will be encouraged to attend all in-state conferences, conventions and workshops of the Colorado Association of School Boards.

  1. Attendance at conferences, conventions, workshops, and/or other meetings to be conducted by the Colorado Association of School Boards will be brought to the Board for action with the primary purpose of there being representation by the Board at these meetings.

  1. Out-of-state conferences such as the National School Boards Association convention held each year will be attended by representatives of the Board of Education. A rotating schedule will be established to permit two Board members per year to be in attendance. Other requests by Board members to attend out-of-state conferences will be dealt with on a per request basis with a decision made in accordance with any budgetary restraints.

  1. The superintendent is directed to establish within the budget funds to cover the costs of Board member participation in such conferences, conventions and workshops as stated above. This will be reviewed annually in the budget presentation.
