An Updated Framework for Improving Student Achievement
We know what a good school board looks like. The impressive results are evident when a board of education makes student achievement the primary focus.
We have identified the core skills that effective boards need to ensure that all students achieve at high levels. Together these skills form a framework for effective school governance. We call this the Key Work of School Boards. With these skills, boards can guide their vision to fruition by exploring, questioning, assessing, and working with others to improve outcomes for today’s students as well as America’s next generation.
These web pages highlight all the features you can find in the Key Work of School Boards Guidebook. The full guidebook is available as a softcover version and as a LumiBook™ e-reader in NSBA's Bookstore.
New Updates, New Areas of Focus
In the newly updated version of the Key Work of School Boards Guidebook, we’ve preserved the best content from previous editions while expanding the scope of pertinent Key Work areas. This new edition focuses on five subject areas that provide a comprehensive overview of your key governance responsibilities.
