Boards in general—and particularly chairs—play a unique role. By definition, they offer an outside balance and perspective to the schools they serve. They exist both in and outside of a school, and it is critical, but not easy, that they maintain the boundary between the two. A board’s engagement in planning ensures that their schools are ready for almost anything without stepping out of the school’s mission. They must balance their responsibilities with their boundaries.
