In this lively, interactive webinar format, experienced legal counsel to hundreds of independent schools will discuss the following critical governance questions:
• When should the Head of School call the Board Chair – and/or legal counsel – to resolve an issue?
• When should the Board Chair involve the Executive Committee (or the entire Board)?
• What should the Board Chair, Head of School and legal counsel each be doing every year to be sure that the School and the Board are handling routine matters properly?
• What should each of them be doing now to best prepare themselves if/when there is a crisis?
Using real world case studies – selected from situations involving the Firm’s experience and from the headlines – this experienced education law attorney will discuss and illuminate the governance, legal, moral and practical perspectives on each of these queries and more.
Presented by Sara Goldsmith Schwartz, Founder and President of Schwartz Hannum, PC a law firm based in Andover, MA.
