The major functions of the school board are discussed: (1) selection of the superintendents; (2) working with the superintendent and other school personnel (helpful hints to enhance the relationship); (3) conducting effective board meetings; (4) developing and evaluating board policies; (5) short- and long-range planning; (6) public relations; and (7) 100 ways to become an effective board member.
