KASB’s Leadership Services provides training customized to meet the needs of your district.  The Association's goal is to help develop and support a high functioning board and administrator team focused on school improvement and student achievement. 

Through our training and programs, board members and administrators have access to the expertise and knowledge of KASB's experienced staff from the leadership services department as well as KASB's legal, advocacy, research and communications professionals.
