An Introduction to the Board
The Woods Charter School Company is governed by a Board of Directors. Each year the parents and teachers vote for Board members, who serve two or three year terms on staggered cycles (see bylaws for specific details). The seven elected, voting members of the Board are all parents. Other members of the Board are a teacher representative elected by the full-time staff, a student representative elected by the students, and the principal. A "community" board member may, from time to time, be appointed by the Board; the community board member may or may not be a parent. The Board sets policy and governs the school, while the principal manages the school on a day-to-day basis.
School Board meetings are regularly scheduled for the third Thursday in the month. The dates for these meetings are available on the school calendar. Please note that meetings that fall on days other than the third Thursday of the month are usually denoted with an asterisk (*).
The members of the Board for school year 2012-2013 are listed below. Officers for the upcoming year are elected and monthly meeting dates are established at the June board meeting each year.
