Opening for PCCS Board of Directors Position

 October 3, 2018

 Dear PCCS Parents,

 The PCCS Board of Directors is comprised of ten individuals, each holding a 3-year  elected or appointed position on the board. Every year, three Board positions become  eligible for replacement. The School Board appoints two of these positions, and the PCCS  parent community elects one. The appointed positions have been filled but there is an   opening for the parent-elected seat.
 Applications for the parent-elected Board position will be accepted beginning  Thursday,   October 4, 2018 . This position will be for a three-year term, which will begin at the next   board meeting after the conclusion of the election.

 Becoming a member of the PCCS Board of Directors is a great way to get involved and  proactively work for the school and its mission. It is also a significant responsibility and  commitment to the children, parents, staff and community of Prairie Crossing Charter  School.

 The board especially needs individuals with backgrounds in education, finance,  marketing, and/or law to help it move forward in the governance of the school. The ability  to consider differing opinions and to respond with civility and respect is a key skill for any  candidate.

 To be considered for the parent-elected Board position, applicants must submit the   following documents no later than 3:30pm on Monday, October 29, 2018:
  • Letter of intent (these should include statements that reflect your vision for the school, your strengths related to board work and why you feel you would be an asset to the board);
  • Resume;
  • Three (3) Letters of Recommendation;
  • Applicant MUST declare they are applying for the parent-elected position .  Applications that do not make this declaration will be considered invalid.
 The above documents should be turned into the school office by 3:30pm on   Monday, October 29, 2018. Applications received after this time will be considered   invalid.
  • Applications for the parent-elected position should be sent Attn: Parent Elect Election Committee Chair.
 All Candidates will be certified prior to voting. This year, we will again be using an online  voting platform, Election Buddy, which is secure and transparent. Online voting dates  TBD.

 PCCS Board member duties include:
  • Commit to a 3-year term
  • Attend all Board meetings (every fourth Tuesday of the month), occasional special Board meetings and biannual Board retreats.
  • Opportunity to serve on at least one Board committee. Standing Board committees are: Finance, Governance, Academic Excellence, Development and the Nominating committee.
