  Keys to dynamic governance in our schools  

Efficiency and harmony between the governing board and school leadership

The 16th ACSi Seminar for Directors and Trustees of Christian Schools will take place at the Château de Saint-Alain. The theme will be keys to dynamic governance in our schools.

In Christian schools, vision and pedagogy are in place, but governance often needs to be consolidated or even rebuilt. Schools and new projects must ensure that decision-making and executive bodies are clearly defined and granted to work harmoniously and effectively, in order to sustain our schools while developing them.

Board committee chairs and directors will be involved in interactive workshops around the principles of governance in many schools in the Francophone region and beyond.

• Spiritual counselors will be available for individual sharing.
• School teams are strongly encouraged to participate (1-2 people per project).
• Please register as soon as possible as space is limited. Registration deadline: October 11th.


  • Committee-Management Collaboration: vision, values, mission, articulation and sharing of tasks, functions and roles.
  • Responsibilities and respective margins of decision, communication in both directions.
  • Team conduct: organization, forms of leadership, conflicts (forms and management), negotiation. Motivation and commitment.
  • Practice analysis: study of concrete cases related to the issues raised by the participants (according to the Gease method).
