Board of Directors
The individuals on our board of directors volunteer their time for the benefit of our school and students. They assist us in planning, budgeting, and implementing school programs and help ensure fiscal responsibility and academic success.
We value the input of our community and invite you to provide comments regarding the items open for review. Our monthly board meetings are open to the public in accordance with state law and our school’s charter, unless the board calls for a closed-door session.
We hold all board meetings at STAR Academy on select Wednesdays at 7:00 a.m. in room 108. Please view our calendar for more information.
