New Board Member Training    1. The Role of Board Members  We represent the state and make sure public funds are appropriately  spent. We don’t represent parents which is what most people think.  2. Governance vs. Management  Boards are not responsible for making every day to day decision. The  board sets up the very high level framework for the School Leader to  work within. They should not be concerned with daily decisions. It is the  board’s responsibility to answer questions of “How well?” something  was done. It is the Administrative responsibility to decide “How will?”  something be done.  3. Open and Public Meeting Laws  All board members are responsible for making sure they are in  compliance with this state law and training must be held yearly. Open  meeting law summary  http://www.ulct.org/ulct/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2013/02/Open _Public_Meetings_Act-05-2010.pdf  4. Board Hat vs. Parent Hat  Individual board members have no authority individually. Their authority  comes from the group and only the group. If you are a parent, you need  to be careful that issues from one role (parent) do not spill into another 

role (as a board member). Staff frequently can misinterpret something  you say if you are not careful.  5. How to Handle Complaints  All board members will have a neighbor that catches you with a  complaint and wants you to resolve it immediately with intimidation and  a magic wand. What is your school’s flowchart for resolving complaints  from staff and parents? Make sure board members lead people to that  path and don’t circumvent it. Do you have a parent and/or staff  advocate as a contact person to direct concerns to? Complaints during  public comments in a board meeting should not be discussions, but  opportunities to direct the person complaining to the person who can  best resolve the issue.  6. Additional Information  ● Be your school’s cheerleader-know the mission and vision  statements of the school. Participate in school activities.   ● Check the State Charter School Board website (if your charter  authorizer is the SCSB) The Accountability Framework lets you  know the things of which you are accountable to your authorizer.  The Accountability Framework is found at  https://www.utah.gov/pmn/files/403053.pdf  ● Other Boards-Go to other school’s board meetings and see the  agendas they use, how they take minutes, their organizational  structure, and how they incorporate Robert’s Rules  ● Charter School Board Experts  ○ www.utahcharters.org​ Training Calendars & Resource  Library  ○ Brian Carpenter’s Charter School Board University  ○ Marci Cornell-Feist Board on Track  ○ General non-profit board resources online
