academic achievement, you can be certain that a high performing board is hard at work in
partnership with the school leader. If you’ve seen a charter school failing to achieve its goals,
however, chances are an underperforming board is behind the scenes. Time and again, there is
an irrefutable connection between the effectiveness of the board of directors and the success of
the school.
