One of the unique and wonderful aspects of Charter Schools is their leadership — run entirely by staff, parents, and community members. Being on the Board of Directors is a chance to work together and make decisions that create opportunities for students.
A charter school board is the entity that is legally charged with governing a charter school and ultimately responsible to its community. Charter school boards govern by adopting a mission, vision, and goals and adopting policies.
The Board provides overall direction for the development and growth of Vermilion Country Schools, evaluates the Administrator, approves all significant educational and operational policies, and monitors compliance.
All members are elected to the Board, unless an opening occurs mid-term, in which case the Board has authority to fill that position by appointment. Board elections are held each year at the annual meeting in February. Eligible voters include parents/guardians of current students, school staff, and current board members.
