Local School Boards

Much of the responsibility for School LAND Trust Program implementation and compliance lies with local school boards. The boards approve the plans prepared by councils and are responsible to oversee the implementation of the plans. Local boards are required to oversee the training of School Community Councils in their districts, and also must be trained on board responsibilities annually.

The Innovation Implementation Cycle

This training is based on implementation science and the things councils can do that are associated with lasting changes. Its purpose is to familiarize school community council members, including parents, teachers, administrators, and any other participants, with the Innovation Implementation Cycle and to provide tools and information that you can use as you work through this process from year to year.
