On Saturday I participated in our annual ISB Board of Trustees Retreat. Every September, the Board gets together along with the Senior Administration Team of the school. The goals of the day are to orient the new Board Members, give everyone board training on their roles and responsibilities, and to plan out the school year. We also bring in a consultant. Below are my non-confidential notes on the training aspects of the day. I always learn something about excellent governance.
I also have worked quite a bit with our consultant, Mrs. Adele Hodgson, and it was good again to spend the day with her. She has worked with so many schools and I appreciate being able to benchmark our school with the many she has experience with.
