The workshop focused on the results of board member responses to the MSBA Board Self-Evaluation. The evaluation measures the leadership beliefs and practices of the school board that are correlated by research as supporting high student achievement and continuous improvement.

"Just as our schools are committed to continuously improving their work with students, the board of education is committed to improving how it serves the community and the students of Mehlville School District," said Kevin Schartner, president of the Mehlville Board of Education. "We recognize the value of ongoing professional development to improve outcomes for students."

The discussion during the board's self-evaluation focused on the importance of articulating clear expectations for continuous improvement related to student achievement, high-quality staff, community engagement, effective use of resources and other topics related to effective board governance.

Based on research, this self-evaluation is one of a variety of workshops designed to equip local school board members with the skills and knowledge necessary to function as effective education leaders in their communities.
