What to Expect

Over a 12 Month Period, we will guide you through a process to help each board member with the following:

Roles & Responsibilities
Board members will fully understand the fiduciary, legal, and ethical roles and responsibilities of serving on a nonprofit board governing a public charter school.

Tools for success
Each board member is given the necessary tools and taught critical leadership principles needed to be productive and effective board members of their charter school.

Board members will be confident about the decisions made in each meeting. They will know the organization is navigating towards the stated mission of their charter school.

Every board member will be able to effectively communicate the school’s mission and vision.

Strategic Planning
Board members will be able to develop and execute a sound strategic plan for their charter school.

Best Practices
Board members receive best practices resources in the areas of leadership, academics, governance, operations and finances along with a custom implementation plan.

When governing board members commit to professional development and training, this best practice of life-long learning is modeled for other members of the school community including administration, staff, and the parent community at the school.

"This is my first year on our board, but I have served on school committees for almost five years. I came away with a much clearer understanding of my role as a board member and a greater sense of confidence as well. Thanks for coming!"
