Building a High-Impact Board-Superintendent Partnership
Building a High-Impact Board-Superintendent Partnership draws on author Doug Eadie’s 30 years of experience helping a wide array of public and nonprofit organizations, including many public school districts, to develop their boards’ governing capacity and to build and maintain solid board-chief executive partnerships that are positive, productive, and lasting. This is not an abstract, theoretical book. Rather, it is replete with practical, tested, real-world guidance aimed explicitly at practitioners: school board members, superintendents, and senior administrators, who can put the guidance to work immediately in their districts. Building a High-Impact Board-Superintendent Partnership is unique in its breadth, containing 11 chapters that address every important facet of K-12 governance and board-superintendent relations.
Governing at the Top: Building A Board-Superintendent Strategic Governing Team
Doug Eadie’s Governing at the Top is both a powerful addition to the K-12 governance literature and a practical guidebook for school board members, superintendents, and senior administrators. Opening with a crystal-clear, eminently practical definition of the work of governing that goes well-beyond the outdated notion of “policy making,” this exciting new book then takes a close look at the key elements involved in building the kind of rock-solid board-superintendent governing partnership that these changing, challenging times demand.
