Board Governance

Coherent Governance is a governance model designed for public school districts and boards of education, focusing on establishing clear roles, responsibilities, and accountability measures. It emphasizes the separation of policy-making by the school board from the operational management carried out by the superintendent and staff.

The model involves setting broad, outcome-oriented policies that define the desired results for students and the community, and then holding the superintendent accountable for achieving these results within the established parameters. By doing so, Coherent Governance aims to create a more efficient, transparent, and effective governance structure that prioritizes student outcomes and aligns with the district's strategic goals.
