Annual Meeting and Board of Directors Elections

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.

This year, MTCS K-12 Academic Community has 5 open seats on the Board (two of which must be filled by licensed teachers and one seat must be filled by a parent and the remaining two seats may be filled by teachers, parents or community members).

If exploring leadership skill development, or wanting to use your voice in new ways is intriguing to you—consider running for the MTCS Board.

Staff, parents and community members will vote electronically from October 12 through October 22, and the end of voting and the results will be announced at the Annual Meeting, on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 5:00pm.  Instructions will be sent to you.

If you are interested in running for a seat on the MTCS Board of Directors, here is what you need to do:

  • Fill out the Board Application form and submit it to Jenny Buck at jbuck@emailmtcs.org no later than the end of the business day on October 2 (at 5:00pm), 2020.
  • Your short bio and statement must be submitted Jenny Buck at jbuck@emailmtcs.org no later than the end of the business day on October 2 (at 5:00pm), 2020  This should be sent with your Board Application.

If you are not interested, but know of someone you think would be wonderful in this role, please consider encouraging them to run.
