We, the members of ASBO MD&DC are the visionary change agents for school business and the professional experts and leaders in the most effective and efficient methods of school business operations. We are a statewide resource for advice and understanding of how school business impacts the educational process for our children, parents, politicians, boards of education, superintendents, faculty, and administrative staff.  These classes are offered as a short-term session no more than one day for six hours. We realize that there is a need for courses to be conveniently delivered for working professionals. These courses will give our members the opportunity to understand, develop, and enhance their leadership skills using a flexible approach that includes discussion, assessment, and application of principals and techniques to help our members become more self-assured and effective contributors to an educational leadership team. Each course has been developed around application in the “real world”, hopefully making this and each follow-on course important and relevant to our members’ personal and professional needs. Using direct, concrete experiences to which they will apply learning from the real work world back in their school systems. When our members take one of the “Foundation” courses they will see that it is designed to allow our members to participate in small-group activities during the course and move them beyond understanding to application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. These small-group activities will provide them with an opportunity to share, reflect, and generalize their learning experiences.
