Hoosiers who are considering running for their school district’s board can participate in a free webinar to learn more about what’s involved. 

Indiana School Boards Association will explain the role, expectations and legal parameters of school board members during “School Board Candidate 101”  that will be offered four times. 

Webinar dates are 7 p.m. Thursday, May 9 and Wednesday, May 22, and 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 14 and Thursday, June 13.  It’s a 90-minute session.

ISBA officials say choosing to run is a decision that shouldn’t be made lightly. 

“School board service is a time commitment that requires patience, dedication, and the will to work with your fellow board members to make crucial decisions regarding the work and future of your local school corporation, greater community and most importantly — your community’s children,” a flyer for the webinar noted. “Understanding the scope of the board member’s role is important as you consider your potential candidacy.”
