The first day consists of 6 hours of training credit focused on financial governance for new public school board members and new charter school board members, provided by the Georgia Department of Education (DOE). New school board members will secure an additional hours of training credits emphasizing multiple topics such as legal issues, roles and responsibilities, parliamentary procedure and the Georgia Standards for Effective Governance.
