Make sure your school board members sign up to take one of our four trainings this fall! Dinner will be served at 5 p.m. before each training. State law requires that all school board members must obtain a minimum of 6 hours of professional development each year. APSRC ensures that its members remain in compliance with the statute by offering free school board trainings on- and off-site. Each year, legal and finance staff travel throughout the state to help school board members complete the necessary hours of training. We also host trainings at our Little Rock office. Read More
