Description

School board member training. Requires each newly elected or appointed member of a local school board in a school division that contains one or more schools denied accreditation or accredited with warning for three consecutive years to participate, within one year of his election or appointment, in at least 15 hours of high-quality professional development training at the state, local, or national level on governance, including ethics, personnel policies and practices, and several other topics. The bill requires school board members who have completed one or more years of continuous service in such school divisions to participate in 12 hours of such training. The bill requires school board members in all other school divisions to participate in nine hours of high-quality professional development training and adds school financing and budgeting to the list of topics to be covered. Current law does not contain an hours requirement for such training. The bill also requires each provider of training to certify its compliance with the training requirement, including a description of the curricula, to the Board of Education. Amends § 22.1-253.13:5, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
