Thinking of Running for School Board?
School Board Members are locally elected officials who represent their communities by overseeing effectiveness and efficiency of their district. The school board adopts the district's vision, policies, and budget and also hires and evaluates the superintendent.
If you're considering running for school board, we encourage you to visit our Essential Work of Vermont School Boards Tool Kit to get a better understanding of the school board's work.
And watch this brief video on how to become a candidate.
After Statewide Healthcare Bargaining:
What Local Negotiators Need to Know
Act 11 fundamentally altered the scope of bargaining for local negotiations by eliminating school employee health benefits and mandating a statewide benefit. This workshop is designed to provide information on the statewide health care benefit imposed by the arbitrator and its implications for local district negotiations. Topics covered include: a detailed explanation of the new health care benefit, including an overview of its fiscal and operational impacts; total compensation bargaining strategies; cash-in-lieu; grievance processes; and helpful tips for school board negotiators.
All live workshops will take place from 5:30pm until 7:00pm
The webinar will be from noon until 1:00pm
