TRENTON, May 16, 2019—The Educational Leadership Foundation of New Jersey, a non-profit which advances the governance of New Jersey’s public schools, today announced that it has received a contribution from Microsoft supporting the Association’s GPS for Visionary Leadership Weekend program, designed to provide advanced training for board presidents and those who aspire to board leadership positions.
Because of the generosity by Microsoft, the NJSBA was able to offer a successful weekend program at no cost to local school districts. Topics focused on teamwork, student achievement, and other areas vital to effective governance. The weekend also featured hands-on small group sessions, which were led by seasoned school board members who serve as trainers and share their expertise.
