School board governance is charged with more risk than ever before and school board members have to confront new pressures from inside and outside their districts. As school boards grapple with the best ways to provide oversight on cyber risk, most of the attention is focused on ensuring that sensitive data is adequately protected. Yet there is another potential major source of risk related to cyber, and that’s the risk of “missing out” on burgeoning technologies that could quickly become global, game-changing trends and dramatically change the stakes for education in the blink of an eye.
Join us for a Q/A session with the Dottie Schindlinger, co-author of the forthcoming book, “Governance in the Digital Age: A Guide for the Modern Board Director,” (©2019, John Wiley & Sons) and Ann Flynn, NSBA’s Education Innovation Program Director, to explore these “digital age” pressures on school board governance and how the most successful boards are rising to meet them.
You’ll learn about:
• Four different “behavior profiles” boards adopt to meet the pressures of the digital age – pros & cons of each, and how to adapt when the need arises
• Tactics for educating directors on technology topics – including “non-digital natives”
• How to help your board become more “digitally-minded” in its approach to strategy
