CSBA debuts ethics training
Fulfills requirement of AB 2158

In September 2022, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law Assembly Bill 2158, which requires school district governing boards, county boards of education and governing bodies for charter schools to complete ethics trainings every two years during their term of service. Previously, these entities were exempt from the ethics training requirements, but under AB 2158, these school district and county office board members are required to complete ethics training as well. The law went into effect for board members elected in November 2022 elections and all board members who will be serving in office as of Jan. 1, 2025.

CSBA has created a training to aid trustees in fulfilling this new requirement. Members attending the training will gain an understanding of the various ethical responsibilities of board members imposed by California law, including financial conflicts of interest, gifts and Form 700 reporting, and learn how to effectively manage conflicts of interest and ethical dilemmas. CSBA’s training is provided by licensed California attorneys and, in addition to enhancing your decision-making skills, meets AB 2158’s requirements for board members.

Join CSBA for the training, Ethics Assembly Bill 2158, designed specifically for board members.
