Since the National School Development Council is an organization primarily of study council executive directors, it is able to offer many helpful ideas and training sessions to groups interested in starting study councils. Helpful information might include such topics as:

  • How to finance a study or development council.

  • What kinds of programs have been successful in the past.

  • What organizational structures seem most useful for councils.

  • How to establish the business operations of a study council.
