In January of 2009, Dr. Boyd resigned from the Columbus (Ohio) Board of Education, after 5 years of service, with the last 3 years serving as its President. Dr. Boyd was noted by the City of Columbus’ premiere news paper, the Columbus Dispatch, for turning a dysfunctional School Board into a well organized and effective governing body. “When voters elected Terry Boyd to the Columbus Board of Education six years ago, that body was in sore need of competence, civility and vision. He brought all three and leaves the board in far better shape than when he joined it… Columbus City School District taxpayers owe him thanks for his steady leadership… He led the Board in establishing a ‘policy governance’ approach…With this approach, Harris (Superintendent) and her professional staff gained maximum flexibility to improve academic performance and operate the district as efficiently as possible… Boyd showed integrity in a number of stances… He will be missed” (Editorial 1/9/2009).
Dr. Boyd continues to assist and direct Public School Board performance via his speaking and training for the National School Board Association. He is an annual presenter at the national conferences, where he frequently becomes engaged with School Boards from around the country to provide direction and training of board members for more proficient performance.
