Essentials book guides help you survive your first year and beyond

Whether you're just starting your tenure as a school director or you are a veteran with many years, two publications will give you the basics you will need to understand your roles and responsibilities as an elected official. PSBA's Essentials book guides, are available to you under the News tab (see Reports, Papers & Guides). The books cover the basics of meetings, finance, school law, working with your superintendent and community engagement.

In addition to the online versions you may access now, printed copies of both the Essentials of School Board Service and Essentials of Parliamentary Procedure are being mailed to your superintendent at the end of November for distribution to school directors. If you don't receive your copy by the middle of December, be sure to ask your superintendent.
