School board members have expectations of the person who provides leadership. The chairperson who is aware of and understands these expectations tends to be a better board leader. Using data from a 1999 survey of school board members, conducted by the Institute of Government and the North Carolina School Boards Association, the authors present a statistical picture of chairpersons, a framework for studying leadership roles, and a checklist of chairperson roles.
North Carolina's Teacher Tenure Act provides that public school employees can only be dismissed or demoted on one or more of fifteen grounds specified in the act. Due process of law must be afforded by the local school board in all dismissal or demotion procedures. Joyce describes the entire dismissal process and also situations where the State Board of Education, and not the local school board, is involved in dismissal proceedings.
