Board meetings are typically held at the Main Campus Summit (Tutor Center) on the last Monday of the month the school is in session. All meetings are open to the public, and your attendance is welcome.
Meeting agendas are posted 24 hours in advance in the front entryway in the communication board. For issues involving personnel, contracts, or other sensitive matters, the Board may vote by a two-thirds majority to adjourn to Executive Session during the regularly scheduled Board Meeting agenda.
The Academy Board is governed by a single elected Board of Directors. The Academy includes Elementary School (Pre-K – 6), Junior High School (7-8) and High School (9-12).
The primary responsibility of the Board of Directors (BOD) is the governance of the school, development of positive community relations, preserving The Academy mission and vision, and is accountable to teachers, parents, students, and the community for maintaining the intent of the Charter.
Implementation of the policies, procedures and daily operations are the responsibility of The Academy’s administration. The Board of Directors (BOD) meets once a month to examine operations, establish new policies, review and change existing policies as needed.
Requests, concerns and information items may be offered by parents, students, and teachers for public discussion during a community comment period at any regular BOD meeting.
For additional information on the board, please contact Lisa Boyer Executive Assistant to the CEO and Board scribe.
