Uranga finalizes leadership training

Culberson County-Allamoore ISD trustee Paul Uranga has earned the designation of Master Trustee upon completion of Leadership TASB,

During the fifth session, June 26-28, school board members in the 2013–14 Leadership TASB class made presentations of their team’s findings following year-long research.

Class participants selected topics related to public school boards facing change and selected narrowed research fields for in-depth study. Their research focused on topics that included strategies to deal with school choice, creating advocacy programs that work, meeting the educational needs of all children, loss of local control, and embracing changing culture.

The Leadership TASB class met in conjunction with TASB’s Summer Leadership Institute in Fort Worth. More than 1,000 new and veteran school leaders received extensive training on every facet of effective board governance, heard keynote addresses from renowned education experts, and picked up valuable ideas from district showcases and networking opportunities.
