The Foundations for Success program is designed to equip board members with the skills they need to deal with issues they face at the board table.

These highly interactive and informative programs offer 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.

This program meets the requirements of Governance II.

Board Actions that Impact Student Achievement In recent years New Jersey has revamped state standards and state standardized testing to increase student achievement. Learn ways the board and superintendent can work together to keep the district focused on student achievement and preparing students for their future. This program meets the requirements of Governance III.

Advancements in School Law Whether it is a new legal ruling, clarification of existing law, or a new ethics advisory opinion, school board members should be aware of the changes in the law that affect the board of education’s operations. This program meets the requirements of Governance IV.
