How hard is it to run a school? It may seem easy to the unknowledgeable observer, but it is actually the result of detailed procedures and extensive knowledge understood over time. This book provides needed information for those involved in creating or administering an independent school by laying out the issues that must be addressed, but may not be considered. School leaders can use this book as a resource to learn about the operational side of running a school or as the basis for a rubric to evaluate the work of an existing school. Operating an Independent School addresses curriculum, discipline, school finance, personnel, grants, support services, and the school community.

MEDIA REVIEWS
At last, a carefully crafted book that recognizes the essential role of school leaders and their relationship to the success of a charter school. Dr. Case has written a comprehensive guide for running a charter school which will supply the school leaders, board members, and any other person committed to the success of the organization a sound practical construct... -- Dr. Naomi Johnson Booker, retired school superintendent for public and charter schools and current educational consultant for charter schools
This [book] was so easy to read and understand that I would love to use it as a training guide for newly elected board members. It has a logical approach to opening and running a school and is a great resource book for anyone interested in how schools are operated! -- Dr. Ann Murphy Garcia, former superintendent and former regional vice president, Mosaica Education, Inc., Atlanta, GA
There are a growing number of independent schools in the United States. Education leadership within these schools is challenging, especially for those leaders who emerge from the teacher ranks without formal leadership preparation. Agnes Gilman Case's new book, Operating an Independent School: A Guide for School Leaders, offers practical advice and guidance to education leaders in independent schools. Her new book is especially important for newly appointed or aspiring leaders of independent schools. -- Francis M. Duffy
