Building the School’s Board - Does the Head Have a Role?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A strategic board and a positive board culture are essential ingredients for a strong and sustainable day school.  Whose job is it to help shape the board?  Heads of School and board leaders are invited to explore their respective roles in advancing the entire board and its members in positive directions.  Explore and learn  steps that even relatively new heads of school can follow to help their board to function better and to accomplish more of its most critical responsibilities.  Unpack  and take with you a plan to build the delicate yet critical collaboration among the Board Chair (President), Committee on Trustees (Governance Committee), and Head of School in moving a board from “okay” to exceptional performance.

Heads and Board leaders are welcome.

Participants will come away from this session with a keen appreciation for the delicate but essential role that a head of school plays in shaping the board and in building a positive and strategic board culture.
