Role of the Governing Board
The CHCS Governing Board is the policy-making body of the school, whose ultimate responsibility will be to uphold the mission and the goals of the School.
The CHCS Governing Board is also responsible for communicating decisions to, and seeking input from, our diverse communities and the Georgia Charter School Commission, to which the Governing Board will remain fully accountable.
Specifically, the Governing Board will be responsible for:
- establishing general policies of CHCS and monitoring the implementation of these policies by the Principal and/or duly constituted committees;
- ensuring that the activities of CHCS are in full alignment with the mission of the School;
- addressing property grievances against the school from teachers, parents, students, and other stakeholders;
- approving, adopting and monitoring CHCS’ annual budget and employee salaries, including teacher salaries;
- receiving funds for the operation of CHCS in accordance with the charter school laws;
- soliciting grants and donations consistent with the mission of CHCS;
- appointing and evaluating the Principal;
- complying with the annual reporting requirements of O.C.G.A. 20-2-2067.1(c) and;
- other responsibilities described in the articles of incorporation and the Bylaws, to ensure the proper functioning of the School.
The CHCS Governing Board consists of seven voting members and the Principal as a nonvoting member. In addition, the CHCS Governing Board will always contain at least two but no more than three parents of current students at the School.
Our Governing Board will also create and appoint an Advisory Board to provide advice and counsel, and will reflect, to the extent practical and possible, all diverse interests in the school (e.g. community members, staff, parents).
The Advisory Board will consist of no more than 40 people. It is anticipated that by implementing and utilizing an Advisory Board composed of diverse experts throughout our local communities, we will generate a deep reserve of potential Governing Board members ensuring consistent and solid governance.
