Trustee Finalizes Leadership Training

The Leadership TASB class met in conjunction with TASB’s Summer Leadership
Institute in Fort Worth. More than 1000 new and veteran school leaders received extensive training on every facet of effective board governance, heard keynote addresses from renowned education experts, and picked up valuable ideas from district showcases and networking opportunities.

After the graduation ceremony July 1, participants joined the ranks of more than 800 school board members statewide who are Leadership TASB alumni.

The 2016 Leadership TASB class, composed of 34 school board members, representsTexas school districts of all sizes and property wealth. Participants who completed all required elements of the study program earned Master Trustee status, the highest designation recognized by TASB. Leadership TASB is sponsored in part by H•E•B.

TASB is a voluntary, nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local Texas school districts. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the
state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.3 million public school students.
