The materials in this manual are designed to help workshop leaders prepare for and present a workshop for school board members on developing an effective relationship between school boards and their district superintendents. The first half of the workshop aims at clarifying the nature of teamwork, and the second half seeks to provide board members and superintendents with the skills necessary to discuss and come to full agreement on their relationship, their expectations, and their roles in the governance of the district. The manual consists of six sections: an introduction; three sections on planning, presenting, and evaluating the workshop; a selection of resource materials; and a booklet for workshop participants. The discussion of planning covers the focus and scope of the workshop, familiarization with relevant materials, and grouping of participants. The presentation section includes sequential descriptions of workshop activities, leader focuses for each activity, and instructions for conducting the activities. The resource materials provided include papers on teamwork, improved relations between boards and superintendents, and the four central functions of school boards, as well as masters from which transparencies can be reproduced for projection at the workshop sessions.
