Be Legendary School Board Leadership Institute

Medium

North Dakota Department of Public Instruction has partnered with Tenet Leadership, LLC., to launch the Be Legendary School Board Leadership Institute. This intensive program is designed for governing teams – school boards with their superintendents – that are dedicated to continually sharpening and cultivating their focus on one primary objective: improving student outcomes. It is a unique opportunity for governing teams that are committed to pushing themselves to do even more for their students.

Be Legendary School Board Leadership Institute is based on five critical pillars to transform school board performance:

  1. School Board Vision and Goals
    ( adoption and monitoring of public student outcomes goals and goal progress measures)

  2. School Board Accountability for Goal Monitoring
    (schools boards will learn to focus 50% of their time on student outcome goals and goal monitoring)

  3. School Board Systems and Processes
    (school boards will learn to review and streamline their policies, procedures, and theory of action)

  4. School Board Advocacy and Engagement
    (school boards will learn to engage the community in student outcome goal setting and monitoring)

  5. School Board Synergy and Teamwork
    (all school board members will learn to engage in team-building with measurable expectations)

School Board members are important leaders in their school systems and hold the power to dramatically improve student achievement. Although not required, the training is recommended for two or three separate school boards to participate in to learn from and with each other. This approach also provides a larger discount for your school district.
