The principles of sound governance and administration of independent schools are discussed in this handbook for private school trustees. The nature and responsibilities of school boards are presented, along with a description of the functions of various types of board committees. A chapter on the duties of school board members provides orientation and suggestions for new trustees, including their responsibilities toward the various constituencies of a typical independent school organization. This handbook concludes with information describing the role of administrative heads, including their selection, function, and termination. (JEH)
