ABOUT THE RETREAT:

Designed to strengthen the communication and partnership between the head of school and members of the board, this program offers the opportunity to collaborate on current challenges and identify common goals for the success of the school.

PAST PARTICIPANT COMMENTS:

  • The BHR is the best of all possible meetings with your board chair/head. I came away feeling and thinking more confidently about my headship and how to map us toward our future.
  • As always, useful. Worth the time, effort, and money to attend.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the entire conference. It is always delightful to interact with colleagues and SAIS is always professional with their delivery.
  • The retreat was a great reminder of what is involved in a successful Board-Head relationship.
  • The BHR was very helpful for my relationship with the chair.
  • Very valuable and my board chair was very appreciative of the information shared/learned.
  • The retreat was very helpful in affirming as well as challenging our current practices as a board. I appreciate the fact that SAIS offers this learning experience for heads and chairs to attend together.
  • The most important thing about the BHR was validation that these relationships between boards and heads are unique, intimate, and that it's absolutely necessary to cultivate them. 
  • Glad to have the opportunity to bring the board chair to SAIS to see what it's like, how much support and collegiality there is, and that he is doing a great job!
