“Exceptional boards orient new trustees and make professional development for all trustees an essential part of board operations.” - Donna Orem, President, National Association of Independent Schools
Nothing in our everyday lives fully prepares us for the unique roles and responsibilities of a nonprofit or school Board. It is a volunteer position with significant responsibilities. There are legal implications. There is minimal school board training. And particularly in small schools, there is a lot of work to be done.
Acies Strategies offers the following School Board Workshops and School Board Retreats:
Board service for Small Schools- a new model
Becoming a Strategically-Focused Board
Roles and Responsibilities for an Effective Board
Vision for a Thriving School
Creating a Positive Board Culture
We will also tailor a workshop or retreat to meet the needs of individual Boards.
“In my past experiences, I have been uncertain about ‘what’ a consultant might be able to do to engage Board members. Dr. Carroll focuses on the ‘how’ of engagement. This focus allowed us to know how to effectively engage with one another once the consultation was over.” -Board Member and School Administrator, The Lab School of Baltimore
