The role of a Charter School Board Member is distinguishable from that of the School Leader. As the governing entity, the Board is charged with developing school policies and setting goals and expectations. The School Leader serves as the school’s manager and is in charge of implementing the Board’s policies and carrying out the school’s academic and operational programs on a day-to-day basis.  In addition to its general responsibilities, a Charter School Board is specifically charged with overseeing the school’s performance. But while the Board’s overall purpose is to govern the charter school, it is not tasked with running the school’s daily operations (that duty belongs to the school’s Leader). 
The Board assesses “what” needs to get done, while the School Leader is entrusted with “how” to do it.
