Effective governance is always important. It is even more so now as school boards face unprecedented challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Trustee Professional Development Program focuses on fundamentals of good governance and offers learning and tools to support governance skills at this critical time. This may be especially helpful for school board leaders who need to make decisions having an immediate impact on students, staff and communities. The following are a few suggested modules that may be helpful:
- Board Roles and Responsibilities (Module 3)
- Conflict: Managing it Creatively (Module 8)
- Social Media (Module 18)
