What is Lone Star Governance, and how does it work?
Lone Star Governance (LSG) is an optional, first-of-its-kind training initiative.
Founded on research, LSG is a continuous-improvement model for governing teams—boards in collaboration with their superintendents—who choose to focus intensely on only one primary objective: improving student outcomes.
Governance teams express this intense focus through a tailored execution of the five aspects of the Texas Framework for School Board Development: vision, accountability, structure, unity, and advocacy.
In addition to driving a focus on improving student outcomes, the LSG philosophy and practices provide a system for managing the board's vital, though secondary, legal and fiscal responsibilities.
