The SAIS Governance Health Check measures how well the board executes on its commitment to best practices in independent school governance in its day-to-day work within the five domains of board governance: roles and responsibilities, structure and operations, culture, board-head partnership, and strategic mindset.
SAIS schools should bear in mind that good governance is a part of accreditation. The relevant standards and indicators and the governance questions asked at the pre-accreditation visit are linked below.
For background on best practices for independent school boards, see these short SAIS videos as well as the NAIS Principles of Good Practice for Boards of Trustees and Individual Trustees.

Schools receive an aggregate report of their information; no personal information is recorded.
The member price for the governance survey is $150, or it is free when you schedule a governance workshop for your school. Please note that the survey must be ordered at least ten (10) days prior to the deployment date.
