THE GOVERNING FOR GROWTH IMPERATIVE

As a charter school raises the bar, the growing community demand — or your growing waitlist — means more and more kids count on you to create, launch, and sustain outstanding schools. They count on you to grow.

And growth — of one school or many — requires an evolution of how you lead and who you need to lead with you. Simply put, your growth depends on your ability to govern for growth.
