Governance Training Requirement

Georgia law, O.C.G.A. § 20‐2‐2084(f), requires that every member of a governing board of a state charter school participate in annual governing board training. In FY22, the SCSC will offer three opportunities for state charter school board members to receive this training through the SCSC free of charge.*

This year the SCSC will be offering all Governance Training opportunities through a mix of virtual and in-person trainings. In order to fully participate in SCSC training for FY22, board members should plan to attend one of the in-person training dates and one of the live virtual training dates listed below.

The 2021-22 SCSC In-Person Governance Training sessions will be offered on the following dates.

The 2021-22 SCSC Virtual Governance Training sessions will be offered on the following dates.

Alternate Training

Board members who do not wish to participate in SCSC training OR who do not fully attend SCSC governance training must seek alternate training through a list of approved providers. Note that the board members of newly approved schools are required to attend SCSC governance training in the planning year.
