On Tuesday, March 28 from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m., the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement is hosting a Civic Skill Building Event about the role of school boards, with Sheretta Butler-Barnes, PhD, associate professor at the Brown School.
School boards have significant power within schools and school districts, but their methods can feel far removed. Communities and districts spend a lot of time working with questions of who should sit on school boards, and what is important within a school, as well as who should have a stake in the decision making process. School boards also have key roles in deciding what information is offered to students, such as that around social, emotional learning and diversity. This Civic Skill Building workshop will center around the inner workings of school boards, why they matter, and how we can more actively engage with them.
