The board members are supervising the executive in their policy role, and doing the executive’s bidding in their staff volunteer role.

  • This project originated in the Board on Testing and Assessment (BOTA) in 2002 as the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 was in its early stages of implementation.
