Ms. Xandra Sonderman, a member of the Fredericktown R-1 Board of Education, has achieved Advanced Certification in the Missouri School Boards’ Association certified board member program.
The program established by MSBA helps local school board members master the knowledge and skills they need to function as effective educational leaders in their communities.
All newly elected school board members must complete a basic 16 hour program required under the Outstanding School Act of 1993. Those members achieving Advanced Certification choose to complete additional professional development requirements covering topics such as school finance, parliamentary procedures, board operations, and policy making.
The Missouri School Boards’ Association is a private, not-for-profit organization that exists to help public schools succeed.
