Board meetings

Our board of directors meet monthly and meetings normally last an hour. Board meetings are open to parents and staff. Agendas include discussion of policy, budget, teacher vacancy or issues, and any other items related to ensuring our centers are run seamlessly.

Join the board

We hold elections for board members once a year in June. Parents or Franchise Tax Board employees interested in joining the board must submit a signed candidate statement detailing why they are interested in serving on the Board of Directors. Each candidate’s name and statement will be provided to each family for a ballot and election. Board members are allowed to serve consecutive terms, but must be re-elected by parents.
