Hard work is not a replacement for solid strategy
The Institute believes it is imperative that each member of charter school governing boards have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities. This means having a foundational knowledge of the academic, fiscal, and organizational requirements of their charter contracts, and an understanding of the need for continuously improving their capacity to govern.
Professional development of board members is critical to the success of each charter school. If your board is looking for proven ways to help fulfill the mission of the school and achieve more for students, this is an empowering opportunity to learn, grow and improve your board's impact. Whether you are a new, novice or experienced board member, or your board is seeking to take your school to the next level, our team at the Institute is here to support you in your journey toward greatness.
New Board Member Training
The Institute understands that many of those who volunteer their time and energy to ensure the success of a public charter school have little or no experience in public sector governance. Our training for new board members will cover everything from parliamentary procedures and open meetings law to reviewing financial and academic performance reports. Most importantly, new board members will understand their role and how to govern wisely.
Governing for Greatness
Receive professional, candid and objective advice from a trusted and respected source. We provide training, coaching and consulting for boards and help schools overcome challenges and remain steadfast on their journey from good to great. With both the will and capacity, all boards can achieve breakthrough performance. And with the appropriate framework, boards can effectively govern for results. We believe that Jim Collins’ Good to Great framework supports this philosophy. Working within this framework, we believe it is imperative that each member of charter school governing boards have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities. This means having a foundational knowledge of the requirements of their charter contracts, an understanding of the need for continuous improvement, and the passion and discipline to ensure the school achieves sustained, superior performance that has an impact on the lives of the students it serves.
