2022 Vision & Training Sessions

An NASB Update: What It Does. What It Can Do For You. And What All You Need To Know
From the people to the programs, services and advocacy efforts at the Capitol, NASB continues to offer all Nebraska school districts and ESUs the resources and expertise to strengthen public education across the state. Our goal is to empower you, as locally elected school board members, to be leaders in your communities. Here we’ll discuss the National association, making sure your minutes are up to the latest standards, how you can best utilize NASB to share all of the incredible things you and your district do each and every day to strengthen public education in Nebraska!
John Spatz, Executive Director & Brad Wilkins, NASB President - Ainsworth BOE

The Board’s Role in the Employee Shortage
This session will provide an update on the statewide education workforce shortage efforts and the challenge of retaining staff. You will network with peers on various topics relevant to employee shortage and retention. Discussion topics will include board self-assessment and the NASB well-being survey which covers social-emotional/mental health well-being of staff, communication, and the climate and culture within the district.
Shari Becker, Director of Education Leadership Search Service

What Passed, Couldn’t Last, & Is Changing Fast: A Legislative Update
After a quick look back on the 2022 legislative session to go over what passed, what did not, and what’s to come, get familiar with this year’s crop of Legislative candidates. With the potential of 26 new faces come January, see who we may be working with in 2023 and beyond.
Colby Coash, Associate Executive Director/Director of Government Relations

Parent Engagement – Involvement in Their Child(ren)’s Education
Boards throughout the state are experiencing increased attendance at board meetings. Board Meeting attendance is always welcomed; however, providing additional opportunities to explore how the district is working to improve instruction and learning is imperative to growing parent engagement. This session will include public comment protocol and methods to engage and include parents in the discussion of the skills and knowledge we believe every graduate must possess.
Marcia Herring, Director of Board Leadership

Social Media for Board Members
Hashtag, you’re it! It’s no secret, school board members are community leaders. Learn tips and see examples from your peers on how to become a strong communication leader as well by sharing your district's story & successes through social media. Even a little can go a long way.
Matt Belka, Director of Marketing, Communications & Advocacy

All Things ALICAP and Loss Control
This session will share recent ALICAP claims stories, while stressing the importance of policies, protocols, and written agreements. Schools’ exposures continue to change, and so must we.
Megan Boldt, Associate Executive Director/Director of ALICAP/Insurance

Preparing for Board and District/ESU Leadership Transition
Transition is not an event, but a process that evolves and prepares all involved for success. It is especially important to engage non-incumbents and to prepare for the transition of leadership which may be the board president or superintendent/ESU Administrator. Define a purposeful orientation and transition process for each role. Participants in this session will discuss current best practice and receive resources that outline measures to ensure a cohesive transition.
Marcia Herring, Director of Board Leadership
