A TALE OF TWO SCHOOL BOARDS
Bergen and Moore have combined their years of experience in applying the Policy Governance® model to school boards in the form of a novel. The challenges and frustrations faced by the characters will sound familiar to many readers as they draw you into the story.
Follow the adventures of Anthony Reyes, frustrated Chair of the Norcrest School Board, as he is introduced to a better way of governing by Katherine Billings, Chair of the Dixon School District Board. As the story unfolds, Anthony has coffee chats with Katherine and visits her board to observe how Policy Governance could transform the way his board operates. The Norcrest School Board then engages on a learning journey as it moves to adopt Policy Governance® as the model for governing its school district.
This book encourages readers to identify questions and potential myths they might hold about Policy Governance, and self-evaluate their current knowledge prior to reading the novel. The book is accompanied by two study guides – one for readers new to Policy Governance, and one for readers already using Policy Governance. These guides contain a few questions for each chapter, making them an ideal way for a board to learn together. Includes workbooks for those new to Policy Governance and one for those familiar with Policy Governance.
