Board and School Relations

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.

Great authorizers and schools ensure they are aligned to win for kids and deliver results. That’s why we coach and consult with new and veteran authorizers and schools across the country. Put our deep experience to work for you and we’ll help you grow and strengthen your capacity.

Board Training, Coaching and Consulting

Great Boards govern wisely. They know the difference between governance and management. They cultivate trust and respect, establish high expectations and encourage the heart. Put our years of hands-on experience with boards to work for you, and we’ll show you the transformational impact boards can have when they govern for greatness.
