Five Important Habits for High-Impact School Boards

The image “https://i0.wp.com/www.matthewktabor.com/images/fred_burns.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. This is Fred Burns. Burns is a candidate for the Hillsborough County (Tampa, Fla. area) School Board next year. He also has a very active blog.

The image “https://i0.wp.com/ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51GCGV4TB1L._AA240_.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Over the summer, he inked a post in which he read a book titled: “Five Habits of High-Impact School Boards” by Doug Eadie.

Here’s what Burns says in summary about the top five:

…thought I’d at least introduce you to the top five. They are:

  1. Concentrate on governing above all else.
  2. Develop the capacity to govern.
  3. Actively participate in leading the district’s innovation and leadership change.
  4. Pay close attention to a healthy board-superintendent partnership.
  5. Reach out internally and externally.

I’ll just leave it at that for now.

**********************

Can you see anyone within the GCS Board actually governing using principles in this book?

I know we have Board members that are readers of this blog…have any of you read this book?

I’m going out to get my copy before the week is out.

Good luck, Fred.

E.C. 🙂
