TASB Governance Camp starts today!!

Please be sure your school board members are aware of Governance Camp, Powered by Student Voice which begins today.  This TASB-sponsored annual event provides a great opportunity for trustees to get training, interact with others, and get inspired by the next generation of educational leaders. That’s what “Powered by Student Voice” is all about. This conference provides a wide variety of presentations by professionals, including several on legal issues, but it also incorporates  voices of today’s students. 

In fact, for our firm the highlight of the conference will be the Saturday morning (March 6) panel of student scholarship winners, moderated by my law partner, Paula Maddox Roalson. Paula has interviewed the four scholarship winners (Austin ISD, Beeville ISD, Schulenburg ISD and Seguin ISD) and those interviews will be shown at the Saturday morning panel discussion.  We’re very grateful to be able to sponsor this conference by funding these scholarships. 

You can sign up with an email to registrar@tasb.org.  Trustees who can’t attend this week will be able to view the sessions for 30 days thereafter. 

One more thing: the conference will provide a Zoom with the Dawg opportunity on Thursday evening, March 4, 7:30 to 8:30. Hope to see some of you and/or your board members. 


Tomorrow: Is the dance team comparable to the football team?
