Doug Eadies Governing at the Top: Building a Board-Superintendent Strategic Governing Team 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 Opening with a crystal-clear, eminently practical definition of the work of governing that goes well-beyond the outdated notion of policy making, this exciting new book proceeds to take a close look at the key elements involved in building the kind of rock-solid board-superintendent governing partnership that todays challenging times demand. After describing the critical role of a board-savvy superintendent in the governing partnership, Doug examines in detail:

  • how board-superintendent teams can go about developing the boards governing architecture (the boards governing role, its members, and its committee structure).
  • how to map out processes for active board member engagement in governing work.
  • and how to keep the board-superintendent working relationship healthy.

This book gives you the hands-on, practical advice on how to get the top job and how to thrive and survive when youre there, by the countrys top specialist in the field of high-impact governing for superintendents and school boards.
