December 10 (noon to 1:30 p.m.): The Leader's Role in Guiding Board Members About Their Governance Roles As It Relates to Sunshine Law Compliance, Email Communications, and the Use of Social Media
Good governance calls for school board members to operate within an informal set of guidelines recognizing their policymaking role and, at the same time, complying with legal requirements.  The Pennsylvania Sunshine Act requires agencies to deliberate and take official action on agency business in an open and public meeting.  What are the implications of school board members' utilization of email or social media to conduct school district business or to communicate information about the school district?  How does this interfere with both their legal and appropriate governance obligations?  What guidance can school district leaders provide to their boards to prevent school board members from usurping their governance role, as well as engaging in violations using email and social media tools?  Attend this webinar to learn about the rules relating to appropriate school district governance, the Sunshine Act, and use of electronic communications, as well as strategies to avoid and address potential violations. 
Presenter: Jeff Sultanik, Esq., Fox Rothschild LLP
