Governance Handbook for Friends Schools
The second edition of the Friends Council on Education's Governance Handbook for Friends Schools bridges the gap between Friends school and independent school perspectives, offering guidance and direction for governance of values-based institutions. The second edition contains new and expanded material on effective board process, advancement, Quaker-based decision-making processes, and building an optimal culture for school leadership and governance. Designed to be actively explored by governing boards, the text is framed in open-ended queries to inspire application. Sample tools and forms are ready for use. This handbook is a useful guide for boards, trustees and heads of Friends schools, as well as the wider world of independent schools.
