Brent, Daniel; Jurkowitz, Carolyn
This document provides eight lessons intended to improve the functioning of school boards and education committees for Catholic schools. Each lesson consists of three parts: a reading or activity to be done by the members in preparation for the lesson, a study activity to be done at the board meeting, and a reading or exercise to be done after the meeting. Notes for each lesson are also provided to aid the person responsible for leading the presentation. The following lessons are provided: responsibilities of the school board; board policy and administrative regulation; developing an agenda for the board meeting; getting things decided (the consensus process); church documents on Catholic education; evaluating the board's performance; setting goals for the board; and the key relationships among principal, pastor, and board.
