Webinar Offers Information for School Board Candidates
Austin— School board candidates and interested citizens are invited to learn about the demands and rewards of school board service in a free webinar offered by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Wednesday, Feb. 8, noon–1 p.m. (CST).
The webinar is designed to help participants understand the important responsibilities of school board service. Attendees will learn what school board members do and how they can positively impact the public schools in their communities. Other topics covered in the webinar include how to campaign constructively and where to find information about being a candidate.
“I commend candidates who are ready to volunteer their time to serve their local schools, students, and school communities,” said Dan Troxell, executive director of TASB. “Being a school board member is one of the most rewarding elected offices a community member can hold.”
