Stargate Governance 101:

Why does the board have a retreat? At least once per year it is both required and vital for the Governing Board to schedule structured time together to improve teamwork and build trust, collaborate with the administration to update and refine Stargate's strategic plan, and to build momentum in progressing the school's strategic goals.
