Wischonowski, Michael W.
Young Exceptional Children, v12 n1 p20-30 2008
The main purpose of this article is to encourage early childhood administrators to make their programs visible to their board members by providing regular, databased information about services, regardless of the program's size, perceived priority, or complexity. First, the author briefly reviews the key roles and responsibilities of not-for-profit or public boards. Second, the author describes a vignette of an early childhood program administrator preparing for a board presentation. Throughout this vignette, the author offers tips about making board presentations that may facilitate better understanding and policy making by board members. (Contains 2 tables.)
