Every independent school trustee must effectively steward the school by fulfilling their fiduciary role, and the board’s partnerships with the head of school and business officer are critical. This session, supported by a new publication from NBOA and its authors, Ron Salluzzo and Phil Tahey, will foster a deeper level of fiduciary stewardship and financial governance. Trustees will enhance their understanding of the multi-faceted independent school business model and complex drivers impacting it, and ask the right questions to inform more strategic discussion. School leaders will learn how best to report information to ensure financial stewardship and long-term sustainability.
