Board Member Refresher Training

State law requires all school board members to not only receive training the first year of service, but also one hour of refresher training in each subsequent year of board service.  The training must include concepts covered in the initial training plus the prevention of sexual abuse of children.

The refresher training must be provided by “a statewide association organized for the benefit of members of boards of education or be approved by the state board of education.”  MSBA is approved by the State Board of Education to provide the training and is the only association that was founded by school board members for school board members and has provided quality board training for decades.
