Charter schools exist to deliver exceptional results.
But, more than that, charter schools exist to deliver even more exceptional results than thought possible with public education.
Delivering on the charter school promise requires exceptional boards.
Exceptional boards and their CEOs are aligned on their goals. They drive results because every minute of every meeting, every month, is focused and productive.
Simply put, exceptional charter boards are focused on their priorities, not their personalities.
Conversely, the one thing that stops most boards from driving results is a lack of focus. A lack of alignment is all too common among charter school trustees nationwide, from the founding years, even through growth and replication.
It’s a simple challenge. And it’s a solvable one.
Our survey will soon reveal how focused charter boards are; and what they’re focused on.
