Empowering School Board Members To Overcome the Status Quo

In the face of declining student achievement, and a post-pandemic educational environment full of culture war politics, we need strong, effective school boards who can govern school districts and work with leadership to focus on improving student outcomes.

School Board Partners (“SBP”) has worked with over 150 school board members from more than 65 cities across the country over the past 5 years to learn exactly how and why boards are struggling to "fulfill their proper roles as agents of accountability protecting the best interests of young people." Co-Ceo, Carrie Douglass recently joined our CEO Chris Stewart, to talk about their learnings as well as a new toolkit and governance framework they are launching to help board members succeed.
