Effective. Structured. Systematic. Practical.

SchoolRight, LLC, is pleased to partner with Dr. David A. Wells in Board Development & Training!

School boards need training!  Appropriate professional training is required and necessary for teachers, principals, and administrators, yet few boards or board members have ever received any training for their role! Board training is equally required and necessary. 

Effective Organization Structures and Systems

Dr. David A. Wells is an expert with extensive global experience in helping schools design and implement organizational structures and systems. His work ensures that these structures and systems respect the core principles of the school’s mission and operational plan while incorporating best practices. The goal is to maximize the school's effectiveness and efficiency in achieving its desired outcomes.
