The Role of the CSCS Board of Directors
During the 1999/2000 school year, the CSCS Board of Directors began the transition to a new method of board leadership called Policy Governance. Policy Governance is a conceptual model created by John Carver that enables the board, on behalf of the ownership, to see that the organization achieves what it should and avoids what is unacceptable. The board defines and communicates what is to be achieved and what is to be avoided by producing written values and perspectives that are called policies. These policies are designed for the job of governing, not for the job of managing the school.
