Questions or concerns regarding the school, staff, practices or programs should always be directed to the Principal who reports to the Board of Directors.

The Board of directors will meet regularly. School board meetings are always open to the public, with the exception of the executive session. The minutes of the monthly meetings are available on our website for public viewing. Board members have no power to act individually in the name of the entire Board. Action can only be taken when a majority of the Board is in formal session.
