Looking for a streamlined, road-tested way for your board to evaluate the organization's leader?
Want to implement an evaluation process that your leader will find helpful?
Looking for tools and tips to help your board focus less on busy work and more on strategic issues?
The Top Shelf is excited to partner with Marci Cornell-Feist of The High Bar to deliver a lively and interactive session on the ins and outs of the evaluation process.
Marci Cornell-Feist is among the most accomplished national experts on charter school governance. She has worked with over 500 charter schools (yes, 500, count 'em) nationwide to improve their effectiveness—more than anyone else on the planet. She founded her charter school consultancy Meetinghouse Solutions in 2001, and has focused on charter school governance since the mid 1990s. After working with her first 200+ charter schools, she created The High Bar to implement the most effective strategies and practices of her many clients, and as a means of spreading this information to a wider audience of charter schools.
Marci is author of the book Board Meetings: A Guide for Charter Schools and numerous articles, including two issue briefs for the National Association of Charter School Authorizers. Marci is also a co-founder of The Achievement Network, which helps schools use data-driven strategies to increase student achievement.
Earlier in her career, Marci worked throughout the nonprofit sector, including positions as a senior staffer at the Massachusetts Charter School Resource Center, Northwest Regional Director for the Student Conservation Association, Deputy Director of the Consortium/UNHCR refugee resettlement program in Lao P.D.R., and Peace Corps Volunteer in Thailand. Marci is a graduate of the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Bowdoin College.
