Charter School Governing Board Composition: A Toolkit for Board Members

Every child deserves to attend an excellent school. Public charter schools are governed by independent boards, and great charter schools need great boards. Serving on a charter school board is an excellent way to have a substantial, and ongoing, impact on a school and in your community. Charter Board Partners (CBP) supports charter school boards to be their best.

Having the right skills and experience around the board table is essential to effective governance. Charter school boards need the right mix of people who bring the skills, perspectives, experiences, and networks the board needs to achieve its goals.

This resource is designed to support boards in building the best membership to ensure student success.
