2021-2022 Virtual Board Training Series
Throughout each school year the GVSU CSO holds monthly training opportunities for the board members governing GVSU's charter public schools to enhance their capacity to effectively steer their schools toward fulfilling their mission. The calendar of training topics was created as a result of input from the Board President’s Advisory Committee.
All training sessions count toward the school board continuous learning requirements associated with the academic grant.
Leveraging the Board’s Unique Value as Part of Your School Success Strategy
Date: June 23, 2022
Time: 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
- Brooke Franklin -- School Consultant, GVSU
- Michael Cousins -- Manager of Communications, GVSU
Description: The most useful and under-utilized asset in advancing the mission of the school are board members. Every board member brings a strong combination of passion and influence to his or her board service that — if leveraged — can powerfully accelerate the school’s success. Being an active advocate/ambassador for your school is a part of each board member’s fundamental role and responsibility. This workshop will strengthen the board's collective ability to elevate the school's visibility by leveraging board members’ personal influence and networks.
