Strengthen Your School Governance with AISA
AISA member schools are varied in their governance structures, but they face many of the same challenges. Frequent transitions of senior leadership roles, including board members, new members of the board with limited governance experience, few support mechanisms, school infrastructure challenges and operating environments that are unstable or hindered by weak government institutions, to name just a few. These challenges risk the school operating effectively and achieving its goals for student learning.
Understanding that strong governance is an essential part of school effectiveness, AISA is committed to providing school support and guidance in this vital area.
For more information on how AISA can support your school governance efforts, contact AISA Executive Director
As part of AISA's Governance Programme we seek to provide our member schools with access to a wide variety of governance policy exemplars, templates and resource documents including the excellent resource provided by BoardSource.
Some of these resource documents are licensed and therefore ONLY accessible to the Head of our AISA member schools. If you are Head of an AISA member school and would like details on how to access this service contact Executive Director

AISA Governance Learning Events
Throughout every school year, AISA provides a number of learning opportunities for school leaders and Boards to strengthen their knowledge and understanding of school governance.
For our 3rd Annual School Heads Retreat, we’ve designed something special. With the input of our new Leadership PL Advisory group (all school leaders themselves), we have devised the 2018 SHR programme to have less directed input and more opportunity for Heads of schools to learn from each other, to network, and to share and reflect on your own expertise in a facilitated and productive way.
