This completely updated 2nd edition of the Trustee Handbook reflects the latest educational research, CSM’s years of experience in our Christian schools since 2017, and deeper Biblical study. The Handbook is both a practical training manual and a call to servant leadership. Our schools need excellent leadership – of the right type! Each chapter provides Scripturally founded and proven-in-action advice and counsel with practical steps, clear timelines, and all based on CSM’s 7 Principles. Find answers to almost any question. This is an ideal accompaniment for a Board retreat, for deepening the Board’s own governance practice, rethinking the by-laws, or writing the Principal’s contract. The job of Trustee is one that requires faith, grit, hope, and a desire to learn and serve. Read this book and be inspired as you support the school’s mission on behalf of the next generation of children.
