Continuing Education Overview 


Training is one of the most important services provided by MSBA. Continuous learning focused on improving our schools and student achievement is quite important for all education professionals.   

While training is board-member focused, MSBA welcomes superintendents and other district leaders to join in the sessions. MSBA believes and advocates that superintendents and boards must work together as a TEAM to improve schools.   

Board members are provided regionally scheduled evening and Saturday courses to satisfy state requirements for earning six (6) hours of continuing education annually. At least two 3-hour courses are provided each year, examining timely issues and areas of need.


2023-2024 CBD Topics

Experience is often called “the best teacher.” Usually, that means that we have had to learn something by making mistakes. But wouldn’t it be nice to learn before mistakes are made?
