Annual WTAMU/TASB School Board Conference


The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) offers spring training workshops at locations throughout Texas in conjunction with Education Service Centers (ESC), state colleges and universities, and area school board associations. West Texas A&M University is proud to host this event for school boards in the Region 16 ESC area.

Topics for the workshop are selected by the planning committee whose membership consists of school board members, TASB staff, school superintendents, ESC 16 staff, and WTAMU faculty. Workshop sessions are typically conducted by TASB staff, ESC 16 staff, Underwood Law Firm attorneys, and WTAMU faculty.

The spring school board workshop is a joint effort of WTAMU, TASB, and ESC 16.
