Seven Successful Pillars of Charter School Board Governance
Friday, July 12, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
Governance is a form of leadership that requires board members to understand specific requirements and processes unique to exercising group authority over a school. Because a charter school operates under performance contract, charter school board members must excel at these or potentially face the revocation or non-renewal of their charter. And since the charter is time-limited, unlike conventional not-for-profit organizations, charter school board members have a narrowly defined window to get governance right. In short order, then, every charter school board that intends to plan for its success must begin mastering what presenter Dr. Brian Carpenter calls "the seven pillars of successful charter school board governance."
The targeted audiences for this session are current and prospective charter school board members in need of a refresher on effective governance The focus of the session will be the responsibilities of charter school boards and how to avoid pitfalls of poor governance.
Exceptionally informative. Fabulous. Thought provoking. Energetic. Best in class. If you’ve ever participated in a seminar or workshop conducted by nationally renowned charter school expert Dr. Brian Carpenter, you already know why those are just a few of the adjectives that have been used to describe his presentations. By combining irreverent humor with straight talk on board performance, he continuously draws board members and school leaders to his seminars, publications, and consulting.
