This event is designed for the board members of one school to work with the facilitator at a time that suits both parties. The facilitator will shape the specific goals, content and the times of the 6 hours of synchronous learning to meet the needs of each school.
The practice of sojourning into “retreat”, stepping off the grid for a few moments of focused discourse and discovery on how an international school board will fulfil its governing responsibilities is essential for a number of reasons. Not only does it fulfil the accreditation mandate for the professional development of the board itself, but a carefully designed retreat also promotes the sense of team within the Board and partnership with the Head of School. A carefully planned retreat will also enable the Board to identify specific governance goals and determine the direction for the year ahead.
The virtual board retreat will be a six-hour interactive workshop (with the specific times agreed with the facilitator) and includes follow-up consultation at US$ 3,500 per school.
If your school board would like to take part in the retreat, please contact Rick Detwiler to discuss organising this event for your school at a date and time that suit you.
