Webinar: Changes in Mandated Training Requirements for New School Board Members

04/05/2023 11:00 am

As the state-designated provider of mandated training, the New Jersey School Boards Association is responsible for providing mandated training to board members and trustees. Training is available at no cost to members and provided in numerous ways, including in-person, live online and self-paced -- making it accessible to everyone who needs it. The State Board of Education’s recent introduction of a 90-day requirement for completion of the Governance I for new board members starts in April 2023. This means that all new board members must complete the mandated training within 90 days of taking office. This new requirement, initiated by the School Ethics Commission, is aimed at ensuring that all board members have up-to-date knowledge and understanding of their roles and responsibilities. You can find more information about the new requirements here. Join us on Wednesday, April 5, for a webinar explaining the changes and how it impacts boards of education throughout the state.
