Local school boards and superintendents face urgent challenges in the 21st century. The authors show school board members, superintendents, and administrative leaders how to establish and sustain strong school board-superintendent teams that can efficiently address the demands placed on leaders and respond to the ever-changing educational environment. Readers will learn to define roles within the team to improve governance and avoid conflict, gain strategies to communicate and speak with one voice, and explore a data-driven approach to decision making and system evaluation.
