Policy Governance

The Jefferson Academy Board of Directors has adopted the Policy Governance Model. The Policy Governance principles include governing the school by focusing on results or “Ends” that are to be accomplished by the Executive Director of the School. By governing under this model, the Board avoids micro-managing the work and activities of the school. Instead, the Board delegates authority to the Executive Director to accomplish the Ends of the school. The Executive Director is held accountable for implementing the school’s vision and achieving the Ends by monitoring results of both the Executive Director and the school. Accountability is measured using objective data, progress reports, and focused discussions with the Executive Director, staff and the community about goals, standards, and progress.
