The role of the board isn't to teach students, plan professional development for teachers, or manage the day-to-day operations of the district. So how can your board have a direct impact on student learning to achieve your district's goals?

The Riverside School Board and superintendent recently found the answer to this question. They transformed the way they approach leadership to achieve district priorities. Their governance team will share examples of the tools they developed that impact how they work at the board table, make decisions, and communicate their work with district staff and the public.
