After an exciting year of legislation, MSBA hosted its Legislative Update and School Law Review. School Boards, Superintendents, and other school faculty were treated to information on charter schools, MAEP funding, Facebook, Discrimination, Ethics, and MORE!

Here are some of the responses from participants of this conference:

Jim Keith is always great.
Good speakers, very motivational.
The legal advice was most helpful.
School boards are responsible for moving school district forward. We must hold the superintendent accountable and then the superintendent must hold the administrator accountable. Very informative!
