Yes. The Arizona School Board Association (ASBA) provides model training and leadership to school board members and administrators. ASBA also conducts in-service education for prospective and experienced board members, including workshops and seminars, an annual delegate assembly, a university of board development, a law conference and an annual conference. Governing boards may also contract with ASBA for customized board training sessions. ASBA also has a publication available - Boardsmanship in Arizona - a comprehensive manual and guide for governing board members as well as other resource materials relating to school board issues.
