Board members attended the Foundations for Success program on July 30 in East Rutherford, Bergen County to help them gain the skills they will need to deal with issues they face at the board table.

The highly interactive and informative program offered members a convenient way to fulfill the training requirements of the School District Accountability Act. Completion of Fundamentals of School Finance satisfies the Governance II requirement. Completion of Board Actions that Impact Student Achievement satisfies the Governance III requirement. Completion of Advancement in School Law satisfies the Governance IV requirement.

NJSBA attorney Katrina Homel discusses the ramifications of a recent case while offering mandated training to board members during a July 30 presentation in Bergen County.
