With organization comes empowerment
One of the pillars of our work at the Institute is empowering charter school boards to govern effectively and wisely. We know that people choose to serve on charter school boards for many reasons. But there's one reason that unites everyone. And that is to make a difference for kids. It's the reason that board members give up their time and offer evenings and weekends for meetings and retreats; ensure that budgets are balanced; ask the tough questions about school performance; and serve as ambassadors for their schools. This is challenging work but it is the work that positions schools for success. We support the important work of board members in many ways. The cornerstone of our support to boards is through providing board policies, procedures and best practices.
12 Board Responsibilities
Boards that govern for greatness understand management's role is to execute, and the board's role is to ensure. Be proactive, ask wise questions and focus on what truly matters. Ensuring your board fulfills these 12 responsibilities will help advance your school to greatness. We are proud to partner with you and support boards in this process.
