Effective boards of education impact student achievement, and the more effective the board, the better its district's students perform. Drawing and expanding on the National School Boards Association, Key Work of School Boards, this section of the website examines in detail - each of the five action areas and its relationship to student achievement.
An effective board focuses on the following:
- community leadership I - community engagement
- community leadership II - public advocacy
Becoming familiar with the research-based keys, learning the characteristics of effective boards and making student achievement the primary focus of board governance will create necessary conditions for district improvement.
