Are you interested in becoming a Board Member?

Do you have a passion for wanting to help the children and families in your community? You may be surprised how easy it is to make a positive impact on their lives, and in turn, enrich your own. We’re always looking for talented and committed volunteer board members to help lead and strengthen our charter school academies. If you can contribute your thoughtfulness and expertise for approximately five hours each month and are interested in this opportunity, we encourage you to seriously consider applying to become a member of one of our charter school academy Boards.

Our Board members come from all walks of life, and include many different members of the community – local business owners, educators, parents, and retirees. Charter school boards and their respective authorizers value diversity, knowing that bringing together a group of volunteers with various backgrounds helps to bring balance to both the decisions and the policies of a Board and, in turn, helps to make great charter schools.

Every child deserves to attend a great school. Goals can only be achieved when they have great planning, policies, and well-thought-out financial budgets in place. The success that is found on a daily basis in our charter school academies is a direct reflection of the commitment and the passion of our Boards in advocating for the children of their community.

How to Apply

The privilege of becoming a charter school Board member is open to all who are interested, and who are able to commit a small amount of time each month to fulfill their appointed Board duties. It’s quite simple and your appointment is only based on whether there is an opening on the board and whether or not you meet our authorizer requirements for service.
