"An empathetic but hard-hitting book about effective school board leadership. It should be required reading for superintendents, school board members, and all elected leaders." --Anne L. Bryant, executive director, National School Boards Association "The chances for providing an even better education for students increases geometrically when school boards and superintendents work together in common purpose. This book can help build the capacity of boards to support district-level improvement with wise governance and leadership." --Paul Houston, executive director, American Association of School Administrators School boards are under fire and overworked, but they are here to stay. Here is a practical guide to improving their operation. Filled with real-life examples of sound board action, Effective School Boards presents a useful model for boards who want to make a difference in improving education and leading wisely. In this book, Eugene Smoley analyzes information received from extensive interviews with school board members about the key elements of highly functional boards and offers advice and insights to help boards make better decisions, act collaboratively, relate to their communities, and plan strategically. He outlines three stages of board improvement--self-assessment, monitoring, and development--highlighting how boards can partner with district superintendents to lead change. Practical tools for improvement include a self-evaluation questionnaire, a sample format for retreats and conferences, and concrete suggestions to assist school board members, superintendents, concerned citizens, business leaders, foundations, and anyone who cares about how today's schools are governed.

The management principles set forth in this handbook encourage broad public and employee involvement. The first of three sections, "Management in Education," looks at the current state of the art, the potential benefits of sound management, and what school boards can do to encourage development of a true management process for their districts. The second, "Elements of Management," offers both basic principles and specific examples of what makes for good management. Topics are as follows: getting organized to manage, building a management team, planning, gathering information for decision-making, setting performance appraisal in motion, selecting and developing teachers, paying for performance, and improving public and employee relations. The third, "School Boards on the Job," examines some practical realities that make schools different from other organizations, the nature of school boards, and the role of the superintendent. New to this edition is an appendix of leadership tools consisting of short articles produced by the staff of the Illinois Association of School Boards that concern the board-superintendent relationship, a value system for schools, delegation and decision making, and monitoring and asessing performance (accountability).
