Board of Directors

Details, meeting minutes, and agendas.

Minnesota law specifies the makeup of the Board of Directors of the school. It must have members from each of the previous groups of adults working with the school. All board members must complete criminal background checks, sign a code of conduct and a conflict of interest document before they can serve on the board. Collectively the board is responsible for the success of the school, including all hiring, financial resources, and operations of the school.
