First Year Journey 

on Your School Board

The journey begins with a series of two webinar sessions. The first webinar occurred on May 8. A link to the video and handout from that webinar are below. The second will be on May 15 from 5:00pm until 6:30pm. These webinars are created exclusively for newly elected and newly appointed school board members. Join VSBA staff and state experts as we grapple with defining the work of school boards and their members, including governance issues, policy, the role of the board, expectations, financial basics, and board operations. 

The First Year Journey sessions will be conducted virtually in 2023. There is no cost to attend, and we encourage all new members to register and attend both sessions. As soon as the VSBA staff are notified of new school board members they are mailed a copy of The Essential Work of Vermont School Boards. This book will be referenced substantially throughout this series. If you have not received one as a new school board member, please contact our office.
