All the resources your district will need to implement the governance standards.

WE USED EXTENSIVE RESEARCH TO BENCHMARK THE BEST PRACTICES OF EFFECTIVE SCHOOL BOARDS – LOOKING AT THOUSANDS OF BOARD MEMBERS AND SUPERINTENDENTS. THESE STANDARDS SHOW WHAT IT TAKES TO BE EFFECTIVE. 

FACTORING IN ACCOUNTABILITY, COMMITMENT TO LEARNING, INCLUSIVITY, STEWARDSHIP, CIVILITY, EMPATHY AND SO MUCH MORE, IT’S TIME FOR US TO MAKE SURE WE’RE DOING ALL WE CAN TO IMPROVE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND ENHANCE PUBLIC EDUCATION.
