Submitted by tamprichard on Fri, 08/24/2012 - 6:50pm
Arcadia Charter School, formerly the Northfield School of Arts and Technology (ARTech) is holding an election this fall for 4 open positions. Arcadia is a publicly-funded charter school whose board of directors meets monthly to provide financial oversight, strategic planning, and guidance consistent with the school's mission. Board members also serve on at least one committee.
According to its bylaws and in compliance with charter school law, the Arcadia board consists of 3 teachers who are licensed and employed by Arcadia; 3 parents who have students enrolled at Arcadia; 1 community member who is neither employed by Arcadia nor is a parent or guardian of an Arcadia student; and 2 at-large positions to be filled by either parents or community members.
This fall’s election has openings for 2 teachers (2-year terms each), 1 parent (3-year term), and 1 at-large position (filling 1 year of an unfinished term). The terms begin at the November 8 board meeting. Due to a change in our election policy, the school will hold another election in the spring for new board members whose terms will begin September, 2013.
The deadline to submit an application for election to the Arcadiaschool board is Friday, September 21, 2012. Election voting will be completed on Monday, October 8, 2012. An application for election to the Arcadiaschool board can be obtained by either:
