The success or failure of a superintendent is built largely on the relationship with the board as a whole and with individual board members. This workshop will include an open discussion of key strategies for cultivating and maintaining a strong relationship with the board and individual board members. We will also discuss how the roles and relationships of the superintendent and board relate to district policies, contracts, and the law.
