The Ultimate Guide to Charter School Board Governance
We’ve seen the difference in outcomes when schools have highly strategic boards that work in close collaboration with their management teams.

Great boards govern in partnership with the CEO and the management team to develop a vision of excellence, work toward near-term goals, and create realistic plans for the future.
In this guide, we’ll cover best practices for charter school governance, including the essential roles and responsibilities on your school’s governance board, how to recruit the right people, and governing for growth at every stage.
