Many Independent School Board Chairs
Not Receiving Support

According to the February 2020 NAIS Research report on Head Turnover at Independent Schools, "h alf of all board chairs received no formal training or support related to their role." In addition, t he 2018 NAIS Governance Survey showed a significant decline in trustee participation from many sources of professional development. See graph below.

These statistics are very concerning as we think about the goal of having healthy, high-functioning boards. I am happy that you are one of the Board Chairs receiving support and professional development opportunities as members of ISCA. This is exactly why ISCA is here! T o support independent school board chairs in becoming effective governance leaders for their Boards.  Help us spread the word to other independent school board chairs you may know! ISCA is here to provide you the resources and support you need to be effective governance leaders!
