Webinar: Making the Connection between School Growth and Healthy Boards
I met Bill several years ago when he wrote his first book, The Board Game, on the topic of board governance. Soon thereafter, Bill hired me to implement my Enrollment Catalyst Program when he became head of school at Providence Christian Academy in Murfreesboro, TN. As a result of Bill’s leadership and the aggressive focus on school growth, the enrollment at Providence has grown over 40% in the past few years. It’s not every day that you find a leader that has been this successful at growing a school.
I have invited Bill to share about the connection between school growth and healthy boards. I believe that school growth is directly related to healthy leadership. In fact, this is the subject of his third book, Healthy Boards, Successful Schools, and every school leader should add this key resource to their professional development library.
Strong enrollment for an independent or faith-based school clearly point to viability and momentum. What then is the relationship between enrollment growth and the school’s board of trustees? Is there a connection between school growth and a high-functioning board? When a school grows over 40% in three years, what governance and leadership factors account for such growth. This webinar will explore these questions from the perspective of the board to determine their role in facilitating such incredible growth.
