Board Governance

Boards and student achievement connection

A common misconception in communities around the country is that board members and superintendents do not have an impact on student achievement. Do boards and superintendents really matter? According to Ivan J. Lorentzen, professor at Flathead Community College, and William P. McCaw, professor at the University of Montana, the answer is not only do they matter, they matter a great deal.
