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 FY 2020 proposal to become a State Board of Education approved provider for Local Board Governance Training, please submit the form below to Mr. Matt Cardoza at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, April 12, 2019. The State Board of Education is scheduled to consider the proposals on Thursday, May 8, 2019, 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, email@example.com) with any questions or concerns related to the application, process, and timeline.
