Responding to today’s challenges of school systems for the need for transparency, workflow efficiencies and effective leadership, the Missouri School Boards’ Association (MSBA) has partnered with eBOARDsolutions, the provider of a unique suite of web-based tools that helps school leadership teams streamline and align their governance and leadership work. Unlike other tools that only work at the board level, eBOARD can be used at ALL levels and departments within a school district.
MSBA’s partnership with eBOARDsolutions will help districts implement technology tools that can drive changes in process that will then improve student success. The integrated modules within eBOARD will be used to support other MSBA services such as:
- Visioning and strategic planning
- Engaging the community and building public trust through transparency
- Running effective board meetings
- Board self-assessments
- Superintendent evaluations
Sharon Horbyk will be joining eBOARDsolutions to serve as a liaison between MSBA, eBOARDsolutions and the local school districts. Ms. Horbyk’s background as a local board member, a past president of MSBA and a former member of its board of directors, and most recently executive director of the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce will help her understand the challenges faced by the local school boards and how eBOARD can be an effective governance solution.
Dr. Carter Ward, MSBA executive director states: “We believe eBOARD is an exemplary organizational tool that will help the leadership in Missouri Schools keep their work aligned and focused on their shared vision of the future of public education. Sharon’s insight and experience as both a local school board member and an MSBA state officer is perfect for her new role with eBOARDsolutions. She is in a unique position to assist school boards in their critical leadership responsibilities. We are very excited about the potential of this partnership.”
