Abstract: This chapter provides insights into the governance of schools. Roles and responsibilities of school boards and school board members are considered, as is the composition of school boards. The elements contributing to effective boards are discussed, in particular the key roles of chairman and school principal which in turn influence board dynamics. Some practical suggestions follow on how to improve school board processes, including agendas, minutes of meetings, board papers, information flows and school board committees. The chapter concludes by referencing the value of school boards evaluating their own effectiveness.
