Ethics & The Governance Team Workshop

Tuesday, September 27, 2022

9:00am-4:00pm

In-Person only

 

Ethical behavior – easy to demand, harder to define, but critical for public confidence and functional organizations. “Can they do that?” is a question we hear a lot from school board members, district staff, and community members. So, let’s talk about it! Attendees will participate in an interactive session with real-life scenarios, they will hear what Georgia law requires regarding the ethics of public officials and what Cognia’s new review process and standards mean for the work of the governance team. Presenters will also talk about the Code of Ethics and potholes people have hit, and more. Join us for some lively discussions!

 

This training will take place in person only in Jonesboro, Georgia. A continental breakfast will be served at 8:30am and the program begins at 9:00am. Lunch will also be provided. The training concludes at 4:00pm.

 

Board members who attend will receive 6 hours of training credit.
