The public entrusts the Board with the governance of its schools. Board members, like teachers and administrators, need in-service training. As part of their job, Board Members need to participate in professional development activities that help them understand their responsibilities, stay abreast of new developments in education, and learn new ways to cope effectively with the problems they confront.
Board members are strongly encouraged to attend at least one or more Board development activities each year.
Board members shall report on the development activities they attend at a regular Board meeting as soon as possible after the Board member's return.
Funds for Board development and related travel shall be budgeted annually. Such activities may include state, regional, and national workshops, conferences, conventions, such as those offered by the Association of Alaska School Boards.
