Everyone talks about it, but it is important to develop a clear and defensible understanding of what "accountability" really means for charter school boards and members.

To promote some thinking and discussion on this critical topic, MACSB has developed a position paper titled "Charter School Accountability: The Case for Quality Governance."
This MACSB position paper addresses and describes:
  • the impending charter board accountability challenge
  • the history of charter board role conflict that has limited board ability to fully reach their leadership potential
  • the need for effective governance
  • the trickle-up nature of school accountability
  • the reasons charter boards are actually more subject to accountability than elected boards
  • the typical obstacles to effective board governance
  • the keys to quality governance
  • the right things that happen
