Training opportunities

WSSDA conducts trainings on a variety of topics though our Board Boot Camp and WSSDA OnBoard programs. These trainings are designed to help school directors govern their districts more effectively by providing information and tools that help school directors become skilled and knowledgeable educational leaders. Attend by yourself or, better yet, bring your whole board-superintendent team to learn together.

Board Boot Camp

Board Boot Camp is designed for new school directors to learn how to navigate and be successful in their new role. Board Boot Camp also discusses the roles and responsibilities of an effective board-superintendent team.


OnBoard is an interactive learning experience designed for both individual school directors and board-superintendent teams. OnBoard’s aim is to help school directors provide visionary leadership and perform effective governance and strategic advocacy.

NOTE: All live WSSDA trainings are currently offered in a virtual format through Zoom. This requires internet access. For WSSDA OnBoard, a laptop or desktop computer is required to participate, mobile phones and tablets will not be effective. For the recorded sessions of Board Boot Camp, mobile devices may work. For instructions on how to use Zoom, please see our How to use Zoom guide.
