President’s Message
Welcome to the 78th Annual Convention of the Louisiana
School Boards Association on
behalf of our Board of Directors.
Our gathering is of the utmost importance as we find ourselves at a
crucial point in time whereby our
advocacy efforts are vitally important to all our school systems
Russ Wise.
given the current state of finanPresident, LSBA
cial crises that exist in Louisiana.
Again, we are appreciative of the
work that you all do on a daily basis for the students
of our state, and, moreover we are appreciative of the
fact that so many of you have taken time out of your
busy schedules to attend our most important professional development opportunity of the year, our 78th
Annual Convention.
The role of president of the association is one that I
will forever appreciate in a number of ways. Most notable to me has been the honor of leading six hundred
forty-three locally elected officials all dedicated to the
same purpose – providing the best educational experience possible for our public school students. The goal
of my presidency, Effective Advocacy through Participation, is an aspirational goal that has been achieved for
our association, but one that we must continue to cultivate and strengthen. Our work together over the past
year has been eventful: one of the first gubernatorial
forums in Shreveport, followed by the establishment
of the first LSBA Boardmember Handbook produced
in quite a long while, the roll-out of our LSBA Legislative Framework, the collective work of the Association
during the 2015 fiscal-only Legislative Session, the ten
regional meetings held around the state during the Fall
of 2015, and, the Fall Trailblazer trainings all worked to
further our mission of leadership, service and support
for school boards. Our work this past year, together,
helped us to accomplish increases in K-12 funding during another year of deficits for the state, and, helped
us to show that school boards do matter in important
statewide elections.
The Board of Directors is proud of the fact that LSBA’s Leadership Team continues to work to bring public
education stakeholders together rather than the divisiveness of the past. I am proud of our team that works
with all of the various organizations to find common
ground on a number of issues important to students.
I would like to thank those various organizations for
their collaboration and unity, namely: Louisiana Associ-
ation of School Superintendents, Louisiana Association
of School Executives, Louisiana Association of School
Business Officials, Louisiana Association of Principals,
Louisiana Association of Educators, and, the Louisiana
Federation of Teachers. I’ve been able to see firsthand
the strength exhibited by working as a group of stakeholders, and, not as individuals seeking different outcomes. Our efforts of unity will be needed more than
ever as we work with the Governor’s Office and the
Legislature to climb our way out of the budget problems that lie ahead.
We hope you take full advantage of our programming at this year’s convention. As you know, we will
likely be right in the middle of a special-called legislative session whereby our state leaders will be working
to resolve the current budget crisis that exists. We’ve
changed a few things up for this convention, keeping
in mind the need to interact with our state legislators
at such a crucial time, and, at a time when many are
new to their respective roles as state policy-makers. It
is our hope that our voices can be heard to make K-12
education funding a top priority. We hope you enjoy
the President’s Reception on Monday evening, as we
have extended invitations to our new Governor, and, to
our newly elected state legislators to join us as fellow
elected officials representing the same constituency, in
an environment whereby we can all become better acquainted, personally and on the issues that affect K-12
education.
As I close out the presidency, I’ve asked that our
Leadership Team request of our members two important tasks. The first request is that as school systems,
we work together to produce a publication, or directory, of all of the sixty-nine school boards in the state,
with an emphasis on highlighting the positive things
happening in each of our districts. The second request
is that we work to identify one board member on each
of the sixty-nine school boards to be a Communication
Liaison, to ensure that messages from the LSBA Office are reaching all school board members and other
stakeholders. Please work with the LSBA Leadership
Team on these two requests.
I am honored to have had the opportunity to serve as
your president over the last year. Please join us in highlighting the theme of our 2016 Convention: LEADERSHIP MATTERS, TODAY and TOMORROW!
Sincerely,
Russ
President, LSBA

Executive Director’s
Welcome
Scott Richard
Executive Director, LSBA
A warm welcome to the hundreds of elected school
board members and other education leaders that are
joining us for the 78th LSBA Annual Convention in Baton
Rouge – our Capitol. Our gathering each year is a special time for the entire LSBA membership, and, a time
to renew our efforts in unity and collaboration. It’s also
a time to get up to speed on the many, many issues that
we face as leaders of our respective school districts. Our
theme for this year is: LEADERSHIP MATTERS, TODAY
and TOMORROW! The need to focus on leadership is so
important to the success of our mission, we felt justified
in making it the theme of this year’s convention.
Our leadership focused theme centers on the ideal
that we must work as school system leaders to prepare
our customers – the students we serve – for the leadership roles they will take on in the future. We must work
to ensure that we are providing the best educational
opportunity for our students, inclusive of the often forgotten purposes of public education like citizenship, responsibility and teamwork. In Louisiana, and in America,
the emphasis on standardized testing, standards, letter
grades, etc., has moved the target away from the overlooked purpose of ensuring an educated, responsible
citizenry exists in our representative democracy form of
government. We hope to recapture and remind our attendees at this year’s convention that there is a renewed
focus on redefining the role of public education. We
hope you enjoy our keynote speaker, Muriel Summers,
who will remind us of the need to prepare our students
for their future leadership roles.
The convention being held in Baton Rouge is not by
coincidence this year. In our long term planning, we envisioned the need to recommit ourselves this year to
another common theme we must all share – LSBA – An
Army of Advocates for Public Education. Again, we must
work to effectively advocate for public education in regards to local control, fair accountability measures, equitable allocation of resources, and, increased funding so
we can adequately prepare our youth for today’s world.
We hope you appreciate the updated LSBA Legislative
Framework, the ability to interact with our new leadership in Baton Rouge, and, the need to engage our state
leadership with a common, succinct message, as advocacy at this time is so important to the short-term and
long-term success of every school board.
The past year, 2015, provided some unique opportunities for the association leadership as we were able to
have a voice in the elections of our state leadership in
the Legislature, and, in the Governor’s Office. We must
continue to strengthen the relationships we have with
our legislators and the executive branch, as we all represent the same constituency and have the same goal to
increase student achievement. The Governmental Relations Team at LSBA has been working diligently as we
prepare for the special legislative session and the regular legislative session that will follow, and, perhaps an
additional special session down the road. We will need
your help to ensure that public education is a priority for
our new legislators in 2016, just as we’ve been able to
communicate the past three years in Baton Rouge – with
your help back home in each school district across the
state.
On a personal note, our work together has been
rewarding and fulfilling as I’ve traveled the state and
worked with many school boards and leadership teams.
The bestowing of the NSBA Thomas Shannon Leadership
Award for effective school board advocacy was a special
event to me personally and professionally this past year,
and, I am most grateful for the opportunity to be the
“tip of the spear” for our Board of Directors and our six
hundred forty-three members. We cannot be successful
unless we work as a TEAM, putting differences aside and
working collectively on the bigger issues we can all agree
upon. The opportunity to serve as chairperson of the
K-12 Public Education Transition Team for newly elected
Governor Edwards has enhanced the association’s ability to be education leaders in our state, and, we hope to
see the recommendations made in the report come to
fruition over the next four years.
Please enjoy your time in Baton Rouge as you collaborate with your fellow elected school board members.
Please continue to let us know how we can better serve
you from all levels of our operations, as we are here to
help YOU.
Sincerely,
Scott Richard
Executive Director, LSBA

Muriel Summers – KEYNOTE SPOTLIGHT
Educational Leadership Consultant, Educator, and Speaker
Muriel Summers works with other educators and school
administrators, helping them understand, apply, and
teach leadership principles in their classrooms and
schools.
Topics
Educational Transformation
As principal of A.B. Combs Leadership Magnet Elementary School,
Muriel Summers and her staff created the first leadership elementary
school in the nation using FranklinCovey’s 7 Habits program as a foundation. A.B. Combs is a diverse elementary school, boasting children
from 64 countries. By recognizing that each student possesses unique
gifts and talents, and building on students’ strengths rather than their
weaknesses, Muriel and the other faculty guide students at A.B. Combs
to continually achieve high levels of academic performance year after
year.
Muriel’s school has been featured on several national television programs including PBS, Good Morning America, and The Oprah Winfrey
Show. A.B. Combs is also featured in Dr. Stephen Covey’s books The
8th Habit and The Leader in Me. During her tenure at A.B. Combs, Muriel has earned numerous awards for her school, including the National
Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, the Number One National Magnet School in America, the National Title 1 Distinguished School, the
National Elementary School of the Year, the North Carolina Honor
School of Excellence, the North Carolina Governor’s Entrepreneurial
Award, and the National School of Character Award.
Muriel started her career in the field of education 33 years ago. During
that time she has served as a classroom teacher, demonstration teacher,
instructional resource teacher, assistant principal, and principal. She has
received numerous awards in the field of education from Teacher of
the Year to Principal of the Year. In 2009, she was named as one of the
North Carolina Women to Watch. Muriel presents at national, state,
and local conferences and consults with school districts nationally and
internationally. Most recently her influence has been felt in Canada,
Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, China, Thailand, Denmark, Puerto
Rico, and India.

The Leader in Me is a school-wide process that develops staff and
students as leaders and thereby transforms the culture and performance
of the school. The Leader in Me schools seamlessly integrate leadership
development into daily curriculum, activities, and systems and create a
culture where every student is encouraged to set and achieve meaningful
goals, be a positive influence on others, and use his or her individual gifts
to better the world.
The Leader in Me draws on the world-class content and tools of
FranklinCovey, including The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, which
staff, students, and parents adopt as a common language (see 7 Habits
Tree on opposite page).
The engagement is a three year process and FranklinCovey provides
professional development, staff and student resources, community
networking opportunities, and ongoing coaching to ensure quality
implementation. Schools are certified in the content, so that the model
can be sustained for years to come.
The results of implementing The Leader in Me are far-reaching and highly
impactful.
Schools consistently report the following:
•
•
•
•
Decreased student discipline referrals
Elevated student achievement
Increased staff collaboration and morale
Raised parent involvement and satisfaction
Beyond these measures, students at
The Leader in Me schools are equipped with the
self-confidence, skills, and attitudes to be
successful leaders in the 21st century.
To learn more about implementing
The Leader in Me in your school, we invite you
to speak with your local FranklinCovey representative:
