Dear MTCS Voters:
Have you ever considered running for the MTCS Board of Directors? If exploring leadership skill development, or wanting to use your voice in new ways is intriguing to you—this could be your chance! This year, there are five seats open on the Minnesota Transitions Charter School Board. To run, you MUST be a licensed teacher at MTCS, a parent of an MTCS student or a community member who does not work at MTCS.
One of the unique and wonderful aspects of Charter Schools is their leadership—run entirely by teachers, parents and community members. Being on the Board of Directors is a chance to work together and make decisions that create opportunities for students.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org no later than the end of the business day (5:00pm) on September 30, 2022
- Your short bio and statement must be submitted to Jenny Buck at email@example.com no later than the end of the business day on September 30, 2022. 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.
