Millions of iPads are in the hands of students worldwide. Unfortunately, many educators still see them only as alternatives to notebooks and textbooks. Tom Daccord and Justin Reich, authors of iPads in the Classroom, see them as much more. 

Don’t miss our webinar with Daccord and Reich on Wednesday, November 9th. They’ll explain how iPads can actually help teachers rethink the design of learning environments, ultimately enriching education.

November 1, 2016 - Running Great Board Meetings

Hi James Leonard,

Holding an effective charter school board meeting is key to keeping your organization on track. Board meetings should be focused, strategic, efficient, and engaging. But very few charter school board meetings can be described in these terms. Whether it's an issue with learning who does what in meeting preparation, a time management problem, or a focus on minutiae, an unfocused charter school board meeting can be frustrating for all parties involved.

If you want to learn how to dramatically improve the effectiveness of your overall governance by improving your board meetings, come to this lively, interactive session. Your friends at BoardOnTrack are poised to share lots of helpful tips that you can put to use right away.

[Webinar] Thursday, November 10 at 2pm EDT, 11am PDT

This hour-long, lively session will cover:

  • Responsibilities of the CEO/School Leader, staff, committees, and board chair in meeting preparation
  • Shifting meeting preparation from being reactive to being strategic
  • Quick tips to making sure your meeting runs on time
  • Easy ways to evaluate the effectiveness of your board meetings and develop a concrete path for improving them

Do you have any burning questions? Submit them ahead of time and we will make sure to cover them during the broadcast.

Can't make it? Register and we will email the session recording to you.

We hope you can join us for some mid-week inspiration!
