Creating an Effective Governing Board Guidebook

Frank Martinelli

Like other organizations, charter schools often face challenges in building effective boards of directors. Many charter schools report serious difficulty in creating and operating good working boards. Tensions among board directors, conflict between board and staff, and non-functioning boards are among the problems that have plagued charter schools in many places. The nonprofit world is rich with workshop opportunities and guides on nonprofit board effectiveness.
