The Board-Savvy Superintendent's hard-hitting, no-nonsense, advice on school board leadership capitalizes on Houston and Eadie's hands-on experience working with hundreds of boards and superintendents over the past quarter-century. It is a practical, survive-and-thrive book that will help school district leaders-board members, superintendents, and senior administrators-learn to work together successfully in leading their districts in these extraordinarily challenging times.
