KING CITY — Susan King and Mildred Dodd, board trustees of the King City Union School District, have demonstrated exceptional commitment to professional development in the service of students through their recent completion of the California School Boards Association (CSBA) Masters in Governance program. 

“This accomplishment signifies mastery of the roles and responsibilities of school boards and a strong understanding of the knowledge and skills needed to build and support an effective governance structure that helps produce better outcomes for students,” according to the school district in a news release.

The Masters in Governance program provides board members and superintendents with the tools, the skills and the perspective to govern in a way that can better serve California’s students and position them for success in college, career and civic life.

Since its inception in 1998, more than 3,000 board members and superintendents have participated in the highly acclaimed certification program. To receive the Masters in Governance certificate, candidates must complete intensive training on the role of the governance team in setting the direction of the district, student learning and achievement, school finance, human resources, policy and judicial review, collective bargaining and community relations and advocacy.
