Our Board

About The Board

The CHCS Board is an elected board of Fulton County volunteers who govern the school. It's their job to recruit, hire and evaluate our senior staff, build and maintain policy at the school, and ensure that the school remains anchored to its charter and its commitments to Fulton County and the State of Georgia.

Governance Website

The Chattahoochee Hills Charter School Governing Board keeps record of all of its policies, agendas, minutes and other records on our governance website. To keep track of board matters, participate with the board, and comment on current or planned policies, please visit our policy website.

Board Meetings

Our board is committed to openness, collaboration, and participation with our community. Our board meets on the first Monday of every month at 7pm, unless that Monday is a holiday or during a school break. Then the meeting is usually the following Monday. All meetings are open to the public, and have a public comment period for members of our community to address the board. Meetings are held at the school campus. The board may also, from time to time, call for special meetings.
