School Board Study Programs: Board Member's Manual Series II.
Brent, Daniel; Jurkowitz, Carolyn
A series of study lessons are presented for Catholic school board members who formulate policies for Catholic educational programs. The format is designed around 15 to 20 minutes of group study built into the regular board meeting agenda. Each lesson is designed as an independent unit on a single topic or skill, and each is divided into three parts: a preliminary study section, a group learning activity to take place at the meeting, and a brief followup reading or activity for individual members to do after the meeting. Lessons are on the following topics: (1) board's "calendar" of responsibilities; (2) board committees; (3) policy development; (4) the school as Catholic; (5) long range planning; (6) board prayer; (7) evaluation of the principal; and (8) board accountability. Leader's notes at the end of the document provide directions for moving the group through each lesson. (TE)
