Governance Guide

CAIS is strongly committed to continuing its efforts to enhance effective governance in CAIS Schools. The work of CAIS toward this goal includes: inclusion of an updated Governance Standard in the 2021 National Standards, ongoing research and data collection/dissemination, professional learning for Board leaders through webinars and the Heads & Chairs conference, orientation for new Board Chairs and the ongoing development of supporting resources and tools.
