The GSS Board Bank

Strengthening school leadership

Build Your Board

Finding leaders with time, passion and skills to serve on a Board of Directors is an essential component of managing a charter school. Whether your board has a specific member vacancy or is searching for a unique perspective, Get Smart Schools is committed to helping schools recruit and maintain a spirited, experienced Board of Directors.

The GSS Board Bank includes over 70 community and business leaders all dedicated to improving education for kids through service on a school board. Board Bank members come from unique professional backgrounds and have a variety of skills to offer a school. Some examples of member expertise include organizational strategy, financial oversight, legal counsel, fundraising, and marketing.

Request a Board Member

Get Smart Schools works with a school leader or Board to best match the needs of a Board with a talented individual from the Board Bank’s pool of applicants. Since the Board Bank’s opening, 15 different schools have accessed the Board Bank and have successfully inducted a GSS Board Bank member.

If your Board is seeking new members, please contact boardbank@getsmartschools.org to begin the process of making a match.
