Sustainability Years 1,2,3,4, 4+ The Five R’s for Sustainability 1.Renewal 2.Reward 3.Recognition 4.Recommitment 5.Results Eureka!
Businesses are always about bottom line. Businesses are accustomed to dealing with an end product. A business will influence and improve the product to ensure it’s a winner. Do you realize NAF Advisory Boards function somewhat like a business… with its bottom line being student achievement? Yea or Nay?
What are ways to ensure that advisory board members leave Board meetings and events feeling that their contribution was valued? Engaging an Advisory Board
Sustaining Advisory Board Members When advisory board members are engaged, sustainability will prevail. Remember the Five Rs
Guiding Questions The by-laws address succession planning, committee membership, meeting attendance and membership termination. How do the AB Chair and Academy Director communicate regularly between AB meetings? How can you ensure continuity from active business partner companies if an employee must leave the AB?
Guiding Questions What material needs does your academy have that could be financed by your board members monetarily or as an in-kind contribution? How can the AB raise money and/or develop resources to support/sustain the academy? What AB recruitment strategies will be used to find members who can successfully serve on a standing committee?
What Advisory Board structure do you think would lend itself to engagement and sustainability?
Advisory Board Requirements Threaded Throughout the Academy Assessment Advisory Board strategic actions threaded throughout the other three Academy Assessment elements: Element I. Academy Development 1.3.b: Data Review 1.4.a: Academy Leadership Structure Element III. Curriculum and Instruction 3.3.a: Sufficient Academic Support
Advisory Board Requirements Threaded Throughout the Academy Assessment, cont. Element IV. Work-Based Learning 4.2.a: Compensated Internships 4.2.b: Support with Logistical and Organizational needs
