NJSBA’s anthology on the basics of board membership, Fundamentals of School Board Membership is now available electronically for free to members through the password-protected portal of the NJSBA website.

The book is ideal for new members, who may have questions about the roles and responsibilities of board of education trustees.  For veteran board members, Fundamentals of School Board Membership can be a continuing reference on effective school board governance.

Fundamentals includes articles on topics ranging from board-superintendent relations and tips for new board members, to the board’s role in curriculum, finance, policy and more. The publication also includes a glossary of education terms and acronyms.
