TSS’s state-approved, intensive CBO training program provides one year (10 2-day sessions) of integrated, hands-on, interactive instruction that

  1. Gives current and prospective CBOs detailed concrete skill sets and resources to manage areas that fall under their purview;
  2. Fosters leadership styles and abilities to instill a vision among staff and plan for its implementation; and
  3. Strengthens communication skills to promote a “business-side” vision for candidates to deal with conflict effectively.


The CBO training program is taught by former, retired, and current school district officials and board members with emphases in business services and related departments. The instructors are abreast in current developments in their respective areas of expertise.


The cost for the entire CBO professional development program is $3,000 per attendee, which includes materials and handouts.
