eBOARDsolutions’ guide relates well to increasing conversations about the state of the US education system. It will serve as a useful resource for school board members and superintendents looking for practical strategies for improved governance.
Presented as questions, the guide shares six strategies based on professional experiences from Dr. Gene Bottoms – a seasoned educator and Senior Vice President of the Southern Regional Education Board.
Dr. Bottoms is one of two presenters on a webinar that talks about the same subject: “The Super Six: Top 6 Questions School Board Members Should be Asking their Superintendents.”
According to eBOARDsolutions’ guide, school boards can see improved results by including strategic planning in their activities, which will lead to a culture of consistent improvement. Monitoring student achievements will also help district leadership assess the success of implemented strategic plans.
The guide recommends that school boards establish structures for accountability and equity, where responsibilities are shared between all stakeholders and students are given equitable access to the learning resources they need.
It adds that school boards can improve the overall success of programs by taking up a proactive approach and engaging with important stakeholders, including parents and other relevant influencers. In its final point, eBOARDsolutions’ guide recommends that school boards improve fiscal responsibility by ensuring financial records are reviewed and shared with the community.
