Online Trustee Professional Development Program Re-Launched

2020 3/12 | Connects Page, Education Partner News, Trustee PD

OPSBA is pleased to announce the re-launch of https://modules.ontarioschooltrustees.org/. The program focuses on topics ranging from Governance to Community Engagement to Finance, to Labour Relations, Social Media and Internal Audits. The information has been updated for the 2019-2020 school year and is presented in easy-to-use learning modules and videos. The modules condense challenging information and present topics in engaging ways intended to build knowledge and skills and support trustees in their diverse roles. 

OPSBA’s goal is to offer relevant professional development that equips trustees with practical knowledge to more effectively and confidently govern school boards. The 21 professional development modules were recently updated in partnership with the other three trustee/school board associations, and are part of our ongoing priority to build leadership capacity among trustees. The initiative was supported by the Ministry of Education.

We invite you to visit http://modules.ontarioschooltrustees.org today to browse the selection of professional development modules. New this year is a Certificate of Completion feature. Trustees who have completed the entire program are invited to apply for a Certificate of Completion. This will be sent to trustees by OESC in recognition of their commitment to leadership and the good governance of Ontario’s education system.
