Essential Staff Training

A variety of employee training is required by law, policy, MSIP, insurance providers or highly recommended by attorneys as reflected in the document below. The Missouri School Boards’ Association will not offer Essential Staff Training for the 2022-2023 fiscal year. In 2013, MSBA created Essential Staff Training when there were few options for districts to provide the staff training required by law.

Below is a noncomprehensive list of sources for some of the required staff training. It has been a pleasure to support your staff training needs. Thank you to the districts that participated in the program.

MSBA school board member and governance team training continue!  Find out more under Training-Events. We also have many resources related to staff, including sample contracts and job descriptions, the Practical Personnel Law webinar series, board secretary training and the Collective Bargaining Roundtable. You can find these under Member Services.
