Governance Consulting Services
The work of school board members is best accomplished when they work as a board-superintendent leadership team. Through trainings and services, the goal of the WASB is to develop board member’s ability to lead their districts’ efforts to implement change that will lead to improved student achievement.
The WASB Governance consultants have a deep level of experience in school district leadership and work regularly with the WASB Legal and Human Resources Services, Policy Services and the Advocacy and Government Relations teams.
Their counsel in board governance is derived from research and best practices from Wisconsin school boards and that of other state school boards associations. The WASB developed the Essential Elements of Governance to cohesively bring school board responsibilities and expectations together as a framework that guides boards in governance for the success of all students.
The WASB Governance Services can address a wide range of governance issues and/or help districts confront specific challenges and circumstances. From developing a vision and working on communications to developing an effective district administrator evaluation system, the WASB is here to help.
Not sure where to start?
The WASB has teamed up with School Perceptions to provide the Annual Board Development Tool – an online survey provided as a complimentary service to help school boards identify their areas of strength and alignment as well as where further dialogue and discussion is needed.
