Great School Boards: Building a High Trust Team

Dallas, TX – Great education requires transformational leaders. What it also requires are great school boards. The Center for Public Education outlines eight characteristics encompassing an effective school board, from accountability and unification to team development and defining a vision for high expectations for student achievement and quality instruction.

So, how does a school board become a great school board? The answer: by building a high-trust team.

On this episode of Change Starts Here, host Dustin Odham switches gears from his standard show format to allow folks to gain insights and tips from experts on building those high-trust school board teams through a webinar presented by Khieem Jackson, Founder of the Mission Strategy Group, and Dr. Marty Schafer, a FranklinCovey Consultant, and Coach.

Throughout this webinar, Jackson and Schafer explore board superintendent roles, shared vision around student success, accountability aligned to board and superintendent evaluations, and community engagement aligned to leadership development.

“We believe if you’re going to be an effective or high-performing board, you got to get four things right,” Schafer said. Clarity around board and superintendent roles, shared vision around student success, accountability aligned to evaluations, and community engagement aligned to leadership development are those qualities Schafer and Khieem detail in the webinar that will lead to high-performing boards.
