Webinar: I Just Joined a Charter School Board ... Now What?

Event Description

Date: Thursday, September 15, 2016

Time: 1:00pm - 2:15pm (ET)

Presenters: Charter Board Partners – Shereen Williams, Chief of Governance and Recruitment Strategy; and Debbie Lister, Governance Consultant

Description: Please join an upcoming National Charter School Resource Center webinar on effective charter school governance. Great charter schools need great board members. However, no one goes to school to become a great charter school board member. Often for new board members, “onboarding” consists of being thrown right into the work without any training or background information. For many, being an effective board member is something they think you can just figure out along the way. But there is a body of governance best practice research that all board members can benefit from as they learn their roles and responsibilities. This session will provide a framework and strategies for governing effectively, with real-life examples and case studies throughout. We encourage new charter board members as well as school leaders and experienced board members, who may be involved with training new board members, to participate in this webinar.

If you would like to attend the webinar, please register here.

The NCSRC leverages the existing body of knowledge to offer best practices and tools to enable charter schools to establish and maintain an effective board. You can view them here.

This webinar recording will be available by Friday, September 22, 2016 here.
