Authority of the School Board

Thursday, March 21, 2024 at 07:00 PM


Digital Meeting Room

Pennsylvania public school boards were never intended to be rubber stamps for school administrators and professional educators. Learn about the basis for school board powers and how to exercise your authority. State Representative Barb Gleim, a member of the House Education Committee and a former school board president, will offer insights to board authority and how it can play out in the board room and behind the scenes.  Attorneys Tom King and Jordan Shober of Dillon McCandless King Coulter & Graham will discuss the legal foundations of school board authority and provide participants with best practices and an understanding of how to approach potential scenarios that may arise in districts.

Will you come?
