SB 1566 Training: Governance for Improved Student Learning

Thursday, September 19, 2019

2–5 p.m.

In 2017, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 1566 which highlights the specific responsibility of school boards to provide oversight and strategic leadership regarding student academic achievement. This interactive session enables trustees to embrace this essential board function with a focus on keeping student achievement as the main thing in their board’s work. This session meets the requirements for Tier 4 credit for both new and experienced board members. 

About SB 1566 Training

TASB’s SB 1566 training was informed by the XG (eXceptional Governance) Summit in 2017. Our training is research-based covering practices shown to promote improved board-superintendent relationships and improved student achievement.

Research on school governance has identified specific actions of school boards in high-performing districts, including setting and monitoring specific goals related to student performance.

This session enables trustees to embrace this essential board function with tools to:

  • Understand available student performance data and what it means for student learning
  • Set meaningful goals around student achievement
  • Make monitoring progress a central part of their board’s work

$50 fee is required; advance registration is necessary, and participation is limited.
