The State Board of Education has adopted “SBOE governance standards for local boards” as the basis for local school board member training. The approved Training Providers will conduct local school board member training utilizing curricula aligned with SBOE governance standards for local boards and which meet identified areas for improvement as submitted in local boards’ training program. (O.C.G.A. §20-2-230 (2) and SBOE Rule: 160-5-1-.36). Training Providers wishing to provide local board member training must be approved by the State Board of Education.
If you are interested in submitting an FY 2021 proposal to become a State Board of Education approved provider for Local Board Governance Training, please submit the form linked below to Mr. Matt Cardoza at email@example.com no later than Monday, February 24, 2020.
The State Board of Education is scheduled to consider the proposals on Thursday, March 26, 2020, at their regular board meeting and a subsequent email will follow confirming your approval or disapproval.
All board member required training related to finance, budget, and facilities for NEW board members will be conducted exclusively by Georgia Department of Education Finance and Business Operations staff. Provider applicants should not include this training in their proposal submissions. However, training related to finance, budget, and facilities can be conducted by providers for board members who are not new.
Please feel free to contact Mr. Cardoza (404-232-1320, firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns related to the application, process, and timeline.
