TASB Summer Leadership Institute 2020 - Online
While the public has been told that school must reopen this fall and the COVID-19 cases continue to rise, there has been minimal input of "Independent School Districts" for addressing the concerns of their local communities. Our panelist will share perspectives on the impacts to reopening and why it is important for Trustees to insist on maintaining local controls.

Experts will weigh in on

    COVID-19 Health Concerns for School Safety
    Digital Learning & Equity
    Funding Texas Public Education
    School Board Local Control
    and More

We'll be at TASA/TASB this October 2-4, 2020 @ Kay Baily Hutchinson Convention Center - Dallas to enjoy all that TASA/TASB has to offer in addition to our own special events. We'll see you there!
