Ms. Hardcopf brings with her much experience from her six years as the Chair of Board of Directors and three years as the Lead Teacher at Nasha Shkola Charter School.

In her new role, Ms. Hardcopf will be overseeing school operations and educational process. Ms. Hardcopf is no longer a member of Nasha Shkola school board. The board has voted to fill the vacancy by appointing a new board member. Andrew Wood, English Language Arts Teacher, will replace Ms. Hardcopf and hold office until the next annual election in July 2019. Mark Eilers will serve as the Chair of the school board.

Nasha Shkola former Executive Director Paul Kinsley will be transitioning to a new role at Nasha Shkola as a financial advisor and mentor. Mr. Kinsley has been a tremendous Executive Director, guiding our school through many challenges and improvement efforts. We would like to thank him for his service to our school.
