The 2020 dates are Feb. 27, March 24, and May 7. Locations will be finalized closer to the dates.

  • Understand the difference between a board’s role to govern versus manage, given the relationship between the governing board and the school operator to include self-managed and third-party management entities.
  • Understand the board’s responsibility for academic and financial oversight, and to provide tools to support monitoring and evaluation of school leadership operator performance and board self-evaluation.
  • Understand how board leadership can engage in the broader community in which schools are located and vice versa by developing a greater awareness of the culture and expectations of the urban school environment.
