Burton Completes MSBA Training

Raytown C-2 Board of Education member Alonzo Burton recently completed his requirement for 16 hours of certification training for all newly elected or appointed school board members.

Burton, appointed to the Board on July 15, 2019, participated in workshops sponsored by Missouri School Boards’ Association, a private, not-for-profit organization that assists school boards. The training is funded by a grant from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and is provided at no charge to board members.

The workshops place a strong emphasis on improving student achievement, providing district oversight, legal issues, techniques for establishing school district policy, and fundamentals of school finance.

Burton’s term expires in April 2020.
