Board Orientation and Training

RECORDED WEBINAR - Board Orientation, May 27, 2015

SC Charter Law requires that all charter school governing board members attend board orientation within a year of being elected.  
The Public Charter School Alliance of South Carolina provides free board training to all public charter school board members as part of our mission. This training meets the requirements of the state mandates. During the orientation you will become familiar with topics concerning charter law and legal expectations, board structure and responsibilities, funding resources, student achievement, and school success. Please take some time prior to the on-line orientation to read SC Charter Law, your bylaws and your own charter, if you haven't already done so.

Ready to kick your board training up a notch?

The Alliance offers Advanced Board Training which will work off the base you receive with online training and personalize an in-depth training session for your board. Shaunette Parker, Director of Admission and Strategic Coaching, will work with your board to set up some pre-work to assess particular needs, create an action plan which aligns with your mission, and deliver an Advanced Board Training session at your school. Please contact Shaunette Parker for more details: Shaunette.Parker@SCCharterSchools.org
