Don't Miss AASB's Spring Academy Core Conference: Leadership for Developing a Highly Effective Staff
More than 300 school board members and education leaders are expected to attend AASB's March Conference, Leadership for Developing a Highly Effective Staff, March 6 and 7 at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham - The Wynfrey Hotel.
Is your staff effective? While school boards don't select candidates for positions or manage employees' performance, they play a critical role in setting the expectations that guide those decisions and monitoring the outcomes. To do that, boards need a solid understanding of what it takes to create a strong team at all levels of the school system.
Join AASB March 6 and 7 for our Spring Academy Core Conference, Leadership for Developing a Highly Effective Staff, for important information boards need to govern effectively -- without straying into administration. The course is worth six training hours and helps fulfill state-mandated training requirements for school boards.
Arrive early and earn extra hours by attending one or both of the pre-conference sessions, the Poverty Simulation (2.5 hours) and Early Bird Workshop: Best Practices in School-Based Mental Health (2 hours).

Annual Food & Backpack Drive
For far too many students, breakfast and lunch in the school cafeteria are the only sure meals of the day. Help make a difference by taking part in AASB's
