North Dakota School Board Association Evaluation Framework Now Available in SuperEval

July 18th, 2022

The SuperEval Team is pleased to announce that a new school board self-evaluation instrument from the North Dakota School Board Association (NDSBA) is now available in SuperEval. This framework of successful board practices is based on six dimensions of board competency (contextual, educational, interpersonal, analytical, and political). These board competencies were uncovered during the Trustee Demonstration Project, a five-year study involving trustee boards from more than 20 colleges, schools, and non-profit organizations in the United States.

“This school board self-evaluation instrument provides an excellent opportunity for boards to reflect on the professional practices of highly effective school boards,” says Dr. Michael Horning, Jr., Executive Vice President of SuperEval. “This allows school boards to uncover their strengths, which should be celebrated, as well as discover possible areas for improvement practices. We are thrilled to add this instrument to our library of rubrics, thus making it more widely available as a choice to school boards throughout the US and beyond.”

“Research has shown time and time again that well-functioning boards have a positive impact on the outcomes of the students they serve,” says Alexis Baxley, Executive Director of the NDSBA. “Self-evaluation is an integral first step towards the growth and accountability that lead to good governance.”

Using this instrument, school boards engage in a self-evaluation model of continuous improvement as a governance body.
