"Dotting the I's and Crossing the T's: Effectively Negotiating the Head of School's Contract" at the National Business Officers Association 2010 Annual Conference

This event has already occurred.
San Francisco, CA
Concern about intermediate sanctions has brought increased focus to the employment contract for the Head of School, but if schools focus solely on legal requirements, they may miss an opportunity to strengthen the strategic alliance between the Head and the Board of Trustees. Done well, the process of developing and negotiating the Head’s employment agreement can set the tone for a healthy and productive working relationship between the Head and the Board, by promoting a positive connection and ensuring that all parties feel comfortable with the nature of the work ahead. This session will discuss the provisions of the agreement that, if drafted strategically, will benefit both parties for years to come.
