Visionary Team Toolbox

When a board and superintendent work together as a team around a vision and plan for the district, students benefit. Governing as a team means coming together around a shared vision for the district, around shared core values and beliefs, and priority goals. Teamwork doesn't mean blanket agreement on everything. In fact, healthy debate is a benefit to good decision making. Boards need to be clear how to best work together, what are their roles and responsibilities and how to maintain a positive relationship with the superintendent.

IASB has created several toolkits to help members do this important work. Your IASB staff consultants are a phone call or email away to assist you with using these tools. We also offer custom facilitated workshops that can help one board or a group of boards consider their work.
