What Is the XG Project?

Can the work of school boards affect student success? Research is proving that the answer is yes.

TASB’s eXceptional Governance Project (XG Project) aims to develop practices that build a culture of good governance across Texas.

TASB’s XG Board Self-Assessment—free to members like you—can help your board in its mission to improve student outcomes.

School boards that are likely to see results in student achievement: 

  • Have high expectations about student learning
  • Have clear and focused goals 
  • Take extra steps to be as effective as possible
  • Frequently monitor progress and reassess their goals

We know you didn't sign on for board service just to do the job, but to do the job well. The student achievement resources for school boards we're sharing here will help you do just that.

The power of good governance 

The XG Project empowers Texas school boards to govern in ways that can boost student achievement—to be trustees and boards who know the right courses of action, who take extra steps to be as effective as possible. XG builds a governing culture that encourages trustees through networking, mentoring, and embodying the principles of effective board service. 

XG is sparking important conversations within school boards across Texas, promoting the idea that eXceptional Governance can make a big difference when it comes to student success. 

It all starts with asking the right questions:  

  • What do you consider to be your primary role as a local trustee?
  • How would you characterize what's most important?
