Description
 

Being a member of the Board of Trustees for a private school is certainly an honor. You are asked to take into your care a school-to ensure that each students education fulfills the schools mission, and that all students are nurtured and developed to their benefit. You must carry out that care by providing support-resources-to the School Head. Your relationship to the school-as with all Trustees-determines whether your school will be successful in the long term.

Being a Board member is also somewhat puzzling. If youre like many Trustees, youre not sure how it happened. Maybe you were approached at a social event. Maybe another Board member had talked to you a while ago about it on the phone; you may even have forgotten the conversation. Maybe you were serving on a committee and this seemed the next logical step. Youve become a private school Trustee.
Now what?

This book is based on more than four decades of working with the Boards of hundreds of private schools.
