Mock Board Meeting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This year, the Mock Board will confront several controversial issues likely to come before your board in the coming school year. You will certainly want to attend this session in order to be better prepared. While the session will follow an agenda like a regular board meeting, the public will have an opportunity to present general school law and labor relations questions to a panel of distinguished school board attorneys. Attendees are invited to bring their school law questions to the professionals!


Attendees will also observe as the Mock Board handles a sensitive issue in executive session to discuss student discipline education, difficult members of the public, social media, transgender students, negotiations, and race.  “Board members” will deliberate appropriate responses to these rising issues. Learning labs following the Mock Board will present an in-depth legal analysis of each of these potentially contentious issues.


The Mock Board and the learning labs will be as informative as they are entertaining.
