Learn how to turn your school board members into heroes by helping them make smart, worthwhile decisions that they will deserve to brag about. In this much-needed book, Ryan Donlan and Todd Whitaker offer practical strategies to help superintendents develop better working relationships with their boards. Youll discover how to:

  • reconnect board members to the real purpose of education, despite their agendas
  • work with your board more effectively during meetings and at times in between
  • guide board members into more productive roles when they overreach beyond policymaking
  • connect and communicate with board members regardless of personality
  • encourage board members to play to their strengths
  • start each school year undefeated and know when it is time to move on.

Each chapter contains hero-making tips to help you get started. The book also includes a special feature on board personalities and the Process Communication Model(R) (PCM), a method that will make it easier to avoid miscommunication with board members. With this practical book, youll be able to overcome the challenges of the superintendent-board relationship so that your board can make better decisions for those who matter most--the students.
