It is important to ensure that boards develop the appropriate processes to help schools keep
An exceptional charter school board is well-structured, well-staffed, and well-trained.
Whether you’re a team of Division 1 athletes or of dedicated charter school trustees and leaders, the same rings true: to perform at your best, to always reach for the highest bar, you’ve got to be well-structured, well-staffed, and well-trained.
Do you have the right structures in place to succeed?
Great governance takes structure. It takes knowing which committees to form, what they do, and how to know they’re doing it well.
Do you have the right people in place?
The skills, mindsets, and experience levels you need in your founding trustees will not be the same as what you’ll need in your trustees one, two, or ten years down the road. As your organization evolves, your board must keep pace.
Most boards will answer yes to both of these questions. But how do you know that you’ve got the right people in place? And how do you know who to look for now, to fill the needs you’ll have soon?
Are your trustees being provided the training they need?
Surprise… no one is born understanding board governance. Not even the incredibly smart, accomplished, and dedicated people who’ve volunteered to help your charter school or charter management organization to deliver on its promises.
Have you organized extensive professional development programs for your staff, yet left your trustees out of the mix?
You have to be trained to be a top trustee. You have to be trained to be a BoardSavvy® CEO. It’s not innate. And it’s always changing.
