Course 5, Module 1: Community Relations & Advocacy

In Community Relations & Advocacy, you will deepen your understanding of the leadership role that County Offices of Education (COEs) play within the community. This session explores the importance of  building strong partnerships with school districts and other key community agencies; how to leverage your sphere of influence, and how to engage with your community as you enhance your advocacy efforts. In this course, discover how to use best practices and protocols that can lead to collective community engagement; communication strategies that better support your diverse students and their families; and to advocate at the local, state, and federal level for all students and schools in your county.  


Course 5, Module 2: Governance Integration

Governance Integration integrates the concepts of trusteeship and the governance team with the roles of the County Board of Education. This module is designed to stimulate the participant’s ability to explore in greater detail the concepts and learnings of the previous modules. Identify your next action steps and deepen your understanding of the entire Masters in Governance for COE curriculum and your role as a board member. At the end of this session, participants become graduates of the Masters in Governance, County Office of Education program, and receive a certificate of graduation, an honor recognizing dedication to your role as a county governance leader and demonstrating to your community your commitment to education.
