NAIS Trustees' Guide: Governance Case Studies

This collection of case studies features governance issues based on actual events at NAIS schools.

The scenarios in these case studies are based on real-life situations that have occurred in multiple schools over time. These scenarios were chosen as case studies because they are representative of the types of challenging situations that schools routinely face. The names of schools and individuals named herein are intended to be fictional. Any similarity to other schools or individuals of the same or similar names is purely coincidental.

These case studies are aligned to the NAIS Principles of Good Practice (PGPs) and can be used as part of a well-defined board education program to support effective governance practices.
