The purpose of the Key Work is to help school boards engage their communities and improve student achievement through effective governance.  The better these eight essential areas are  integrated into a systematic process, the better the results will be for all stakeholders.

The goal of this website is to share understanding and applications of the Key Work system.  It provides resources, training materials, networking opportunities, and research on effective school governance. If you need additional help with the Key Work system, please contact Kanisha Williams-Jones, Director of Educational Services.
