Mandatory Board Member Training
Mandatory Development and Training Completed by Board Members
All Illinois school board members must receive training in Professional Development Leadership (P.A. 97-8) and the Open Meetings Act (P.A. 97-504). Mandatory training will also be required after new teacher evaluation requirements are implemented by the school district. For additional information, see board policy 2:120, Board Member Development.
This table is a sample of how to report the mandatory training and development activities that have been completed by board members. This list should be updated as board members complete and submit their training activities to the board secretary.
