A school’s single largest asset is the facility itself and its sole purpose is serving students programmatically and operationally with fiscal stewardship for the future. Too often Academies are not realizing the incredible opportunities available to maximize their facility and create lasting positive academic and financial change.
Board & Authorizer Relationship
The charter contract is an agreement between the authorizer and a board. When the relationship between the two parties is optimized, kids win. Whether the relationship has not yet been built, or requires improvement, the experienced team at the Institute can help.
Board & School Relationship
Successful schools have strong boards and great leaders. We believe the most important thing is to establish clarity about roles and responsibilities--especially between the chief executive and the board.
