School Board Training

Required Board Training Location Date Time


The required new School Board training sessions are offered at no cost to the Districts that have joined the ESC Superintendent and School Board Leadership Cooperative. For Districts that are not part of this Cooperative, the fees are $200 per Board member participant or $1200 for the entire Board team.

The Board training sessions can be accessed through our workshop registration system found on our website or you may contact Michelle Morales at 361‐561‐8402 or [email protected]. For districts not part of the Cooperative, you will need a purchase order number for the registration. Registration is available now.
