The Frustrations of Working with the School Board

Kris Bjorgen discusses the frustration of working with school boards.

The seminar host often asks administrators this question: “of all the facets of your ministry, what do you find the most challenging.” Without exception, the number one response is, “The school board.” When asked for clarification, the most common responses are: “They create policies the discourage growth.” “They do not support my leadership at the school.” ” They micro-manage the school.” This seminar shares insightful suggestions for improving the relationship between the school administration and the board. Included are a five page handout and a pdf copy of a 31 page resource written by the seminar host to give to the school board.
