Kristin Gibson, a trustee of the Del Mar Union School District, has completed the California School Boards Association (CSBA) Masters in Governance program, a certificate program that defines the roles and responsibilities of school boards and provides governance teams with the knowledge and skills to build and support an effective governance structure.

“This certificate recognizes a demonstrated commitment to learning, leadership and effective governance,” said CSBA President and Moreno Valley USD board member Jesus M. Holguin.

“The Masters in Governance program provides board members and superintendents with the tools to govern effectively in order to better serve California’s students.”

To receive the Masters in Governance certificate, candidates must complete 35 hours of intensive training on the role of the governance team in setting the direction of the district, student learning and achievement, school finance and facilities, human resources, policy and judicial review, collective bargaining, and community relations and advocacy.
