What is Leadership Governance
and
What's In It For Your Board?
Leadership Governance is a comprehensive and straight-forward Program for Board action that paves the way to a highly effective organization. Leadership Governance shows the Board how to lead the Academy in achieving its mission without getting mired in the details. It paves the way to quality Education in a clear and measurable manner, and provides the tools Boards need to do the job called Governance! It replaces the mystery and uncertainty of Board work with a confidence building model for Board performance that focuses on pinpointing accountability for student achievement while promoting a creative environment for school administration.

    What are the guiding principles of Leadership Governance?
  • Boards are established to lead...NOT follow.
  • Boards are accountable for everything, but not responsible for daily school operations.
  • Boards must establish their EXPECTATIONS for Academy performance and prudent administration AND measure the level of accomplishment.
  • Boards must be independent representatives of the public at large.
