New Resource Book Available:
"Better Boards, Better Schools"
A new resource, published by Independent School Management, is now available to provide guidance to independent school boards. "Better Boards, Better Schools - The ISM Guide for Private School Trusteeship and Strategic Governance," was published in 2019. ISM states that the book's guidance is based on more than 40 years of experience working with boards of hundreds of private schools.
The chapters include some topics you would expect like, The Role of the Trustee, Recruiting and Orienting Board Members, Board Committees, Board-Head Relationships, but also includes some unique and interesting topics such as Understanding Private School Finances, ISM Success Predictors, and Purpose and Outcome Statements.
This publication can be ordered online through the ISM website. For non-ISM member schools, the cost is a reasonable $35.95.
