Getting Governance Right

Presented by Marc Frankel

Synopsis: Governance is not management. Private, independent Montessori schools need both—good governance exercised by the board of trustees and good management practiced by the head of school and team. This session will focus on good practices in trusteeship, the relationship between the governing board and head of school, and a framework for strategic thinking at the board level. Using multiple case studies developed from real governance dilemmas in schools, those attending will understand good practice, know how to keep their governance on track, and leave with a model for adding value to their schools.
