Working well as a board
Ko te mahi tahi hei poari
There are various ways to report back on the board’s relationship. You can do this by demonstrating your respect for one another publicly and maintaining a shared voice on key issues. You can report on your progress as a team in newsletters and any general discussions you may have with staff and community members. You can also use the self-review process to guide you.
What you need to know about self-review
Self-review is a formal process based on the objectives and targets set out in your school’s strategic and annual plans. It’s also a really handy process you can use to reflect and report on your progress as a team and to critically analyse the way you operate. Need help setting it up? You’re welcome to get in touch to find out how.
How NZSTA’s internal evaluation tool can help
NZSTA has also developed an internal evaluation tool designed to help you track and report back on your performance in different areas – from your goals for student achievement through to the board relationship generally, the level of trust within the board and the quality of board meetings. It’s another good way to formally track and report back on your board’s work.
