Top Governance Questions

Believe it or not, trustees across the state ask many of the same governance-related questions. A TASB Legal Services Attorney will go over real-life governance situations that trustees and administrators ask us every day.

Term Contract Nonrenewal

What is the board’s role in contract nonrenewals? Are there pitfalls the board should avoid? Our sample meeting agendas, motions, and notices will provide a simple roadmap to guide the board and administration safely through contract decision time.

Student Health and Safety

Student achievement increases when student health and safety are prioritized by a district. In recent years, the legislature has focused on issues involving student safety, including improvements for physical and mental health. Join us for a discussion on important updates, including medication laws, SHAC requirements, procedures for mental health and safety concerns, and more.

Safety Planning and Facilities

School safety is a priority for school districts. Lawmakers and state agencies are updating laws and regulations to address school safety, and trustees need to maintain a working knowledge of these legal requirements. In this session, a TASB attorney will discuss legal and practical considerations relating to district’s safety and securing school district facilities.

Legal and Legislative Update

Are you ready for a legal presentation that is informative and fun? Then you’ll love our Legal Update! Learn a lot (and laugh a little) while hearing about the 2023 legislative changes and other legal news. This session is offered as the mandatory legislative update or 1.5 hours of continuing education credit.
