The Broad Center for the Management of School Systems has formed an advisory board made up of prominent education and business leaders to govern its executive-management programs. The group will meet regularly as the center works on increasing the number of people it trains.

The Broad Center, founded and funded by the Los Angeles-based Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, manages the Broad Superintendents Academy, a 10-month boot camp for prospective urban superintendents, and the Broad Residency in Urban Education, a management program for central-office leaders.

Board members include Margaret Spellings, the former U.S. secretary of education; Wendy Kopp, the founder of Teach For America; Michelle A. Rhee, the chancellor of the District of Columbia schools; Arlene C. Ackerman, the superintendent of the Philadelphia schools; and Louis Gerstner Jr., a senior adviser with the Carlyle Group. Joel I. Klein, the New York City schools chancellor, is the board’s chairman.
