The school board is made up of elected members of parents and community members. They bring extensive and varied experience from the education and business sectors to ensure that PALS students are receiving a diverse and effective education. The board does not typically involve itself in day to day operations of the school, instead it's focus is to ensure fiscal responsibility and compliance with the school charter, along with state and federal regulations. In addition the board is there to ensure that all staff, parents, and students receive fair and equitable treatment.
New board members are elected annually, each member may serve a maximum of two years before being required to either retire from the board or run for reelection.
How to work with your board
While we welcome suggestions and will happily listen to any concerns or ideas you might have, please understand that a board member cannot unilaterally make a policy decision. As an individual, a board member has no authority. Should you have a concern that you would like the board to address, it is recommended that you attend a board meeting and formally voice your concerns.
