Course 1, Module 1: Foundations of Effective Governance
Foundations for Effective Governance will provide you with an overview of the variety of County Superintendent structures and the impact of those structures on building the governance team. We will reference the history of the County Office of Education, and work through Board and Superintendent roles and relationships based on local practices and policies and state statues. We will discuss the important concepts of trust, confidentiality, the building of key relationships and the responsibility of County Board of Education Members to develop collaborative partnerships with other county agencies and advocate for students and school districts. You will learn more about how County Offices of Education can support school districts in a time of change; exploring the interplay between CBOEs and School Districts. You will learn about the Effective Governance System and its application in the relationship among co-electeds on a governance team where roles and responsibilities are clearly defined.
Course 1, Module 2: Setting Direction
In the Setting Direction module of Course 1, you will be led through an overview of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) as we focus on the role of the County Board in this process for County operated schools. Participants will engage in a robust discussion of strategic planning – beyond the mission and vision and you will work on alignment – what does it mean and what is the county board member’s role in alignment as it relates to the County Office of Education’s LCAP and to the board and superintendent relationship. Lastly, we will work on stakeholder engagement at the county level; who are your stakeholders and how do you outreach to the variety of county audiences and engage them on behalf of student achievement?
Each course will have pre-course assignments which need to be completed prior to attending the virtual sessions. One week before the course, participants will receive the Know Before You Go eblast Zoom links and materials download.
