Welcome to Board Basics!
The Governing Board is responsible for the legal and financial obligations of the school(s) they serve. The Board establishes policy consistent with the school's mission and ensures the school's programs and operations adhere to the terms of the charter including compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements. The members of a charter school's governing board are community members that volunteer their time to ensure charter schools are mission and student focused!
This course provides a bank of relevant information for charter school board members on effective charter school governance as well as resources that boards can use to help facilitate their operations.
