Governance Education for School Board Members and Superintendents
CSBA's Masters in Governance program equips board members and superintendents with the knowledge and skills to build and support an effective governance structure.
The retooled program includes the same core governance principles that have made it the standard for board member professional development across the country but with an accelerated timeline, convenient format and program flexibility for busy professionals. The program allows you to complete the program at your own pace.
When you register for one of the five courses, you’ll have access to materials and useful handouts to share with other members of your governance team via My CSBA at www.csba.org. Each course will have pre-course assignments which need to be completed prior to attending the full-day course.
Program modules are offered at various locations statewide throughout the year, allowing participants the flexibility to choose where and when to attend.
More than 2,000 board members and superintendents have participated in CSBA’s highly-acclaimed Masters in Governance program. Ninety percent of graduates strongly recommend this program for governance teams; and more than 80 percent reported that the overall program gave them the knowledge base needed to perform their governance responsibilities.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: March MIG trainings are CANCELLED.
All MIG trainings have been cancelled for the month of March. We apologize for the inconvenience but given the current global pandemic and conditions in California surrounding COVID-19, we feel this measure serves the best interests of members and staff.
We are making this decision out of an abundance of caution and a concern for your health and for the safety of the broader community. MIG training is a tremendous opportunity to enhance your governance practice and we want to ensure you benefit from this crucial professional development. At the same time, we want to follow the mitigation strategy for limiting the spread of the virus as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.
We are monitoring the situation closely and following recommendations from public health and workplace safety experts in addition to complying with the executive orders issued by Gov. Newsom. Once we have determined that is prudent to resume public training, we will provide information on rescheduled MIG workshops and how you can participate.
In the meantime, we thank you for your continued interest in CSBA’s MIG program and your understanding as we seek to do our part in responding to COVID-19. We hope to see you soon and look forward to providing you with this best-in-class training on school board governance.
