Is your board interested in cultivating the next generation of local leaders? In support of our commitment to quality leadership for Maryland’s public schools, the Maryland Association of Boards of Education has developed a Candidate Information Session to help school and community leaders inform school board candidates.
Customized for your school system and held locally, these sessions provide candidates with information on the following topics:
- Overview of school boards and members in the state and country
- Board member duties, roles, and responsibilities
- The Board – Superintendent Relationship
- Characteristics of effective board members
- Why board members serve
To discuss planning an event for candidates, please contact Emily Heard, Director of Board Development, firstname.lastname@example.org.
