Board of Directors

The Board of Directors oversees all school operations, including setting school-wide goals; setting policies and procedures, making all hiring decisions, and setting the budget and ensuring the financial health of the school.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend monthly board meetings, which begin at 6:00 p.m. and are held at Clackamas Community College at the DeJardin Building in room 233. Please note: the DeJardin building is the glass building on the south side of campus (closest to Highway 213) and directly across from the soccer fields.

The agendas will be posted and available prior to the meetings and minutes will be posted online.  See the School Calendar for meeting dates and the Board News Page for agendas and minutes.

Board meeting procedures include:
  1. All board meetings will be posted on the calendar for the entire upcoming school year.
  2. Agendas will be posted 48 hours prior to each meeting, both in hard copy at the school and electronically on the website.
  3. Meeting minutes will be approved by the board at the next month’s meeting, and then posted approximately one week after that on the website.
  4. In order to facilitate community involvement, the public comment section of each board meeting has been moved to the beginning of the agenda.
  5. A time limit of 3 minutes per individual will be enforced to ensure that the Board can hear public comment at the outset and still proceed through that month’s agenda items without delay.
  6. If students wish to attend and speak at a board meeting, it is requested that the student (or parent) notify the Board chair at least 48 hours in advance, so that the location of the meeting can be changed to the school.
  7. Input sessions, surveys and other opportunities for obtaining families’ input, such as the Spring 2012 facilitated input sessions, will be scheduled on an as-needed basis to supplement the opportunity for public comment at board meetings.
