The board of the school is the leadership. Selecting board members through a robust and solid process is imperative to a good board. We help the board come up with this selection process and document this in a way that is easily followed.
Seemingly standard, this important document matters more significantly to the health of the board than anything. What are the terms of the board members? Who is on the board? What are the qualifications for a board member? These important questions need to be navigated and clearly documented.
In our current culture, a binding school constitution is strongly recommended for schools that do not have a church as an umbrella organization over them. This constitution ensures that the vision of the school remains and this places important safeguards around the organization.
The board is the "vision holder" of the school. A clear mission and vision with quantifiable benchmarks is key to making sure a school stays on track.
We can help structure the school in a way that leads the school well. This is best done through the organizational chart, clear bylaws, clear policies and through solid communication structures.
It is vital that a board follow a clear agenda and move through the year following a clear timeline for needed decisions. We specialize in advising boards to create a structure that far outlasts the current members, a structure that will help sustain the school for years to come.
We step in with leadership training, conflict resolution and more to help ensure that your board is running at its best capacity.
There is almost nothing more important to the vision of the school than to have a solid, Doctrinal policy that is clear for purposes of hiring, bringing in families and setting curriculum and pedagogical decisions.
