Athlos Leadership Academy is governed by a dedicated board comprised of parents, teachers and community members. The board is responsible for developing, implementing, and assessing policy, instituting sound employee relations, conducting open meetings, recognizing and conforming to the legal mandates imposed by state and federal laws, and governing within the limits of a delegation of state authority as a nonprofit and public school board. Additionally, the board has an obligation to assess its successes and challenges, inform the public of all deliberations and decisions, promote accountability, avoid abuse of power, enhance public understanding of its mission, conform to standards of ethical behavior, provide a framework for setting goals, and develop strategic plans for the accomplishment of those goals.
ALA Board and ALA Board Committee meetings are posted on the school website calendar. Board meetings are conducted in accordance with Open Meeting Law. Approved minutes from past board meetings can be found by visiting this web page.
As a general matter, complaints should not be brought directly to the Board unless pursuant to a Board Policy directive. Questions and concerns should first be brought to the school’s administration. If, after speaking to administration, you need further clarification, please work with the administrator to contact the Board Chair in writing.
Athlos Leadership Academy seeks board nominees with professional experience in business, marketing, law, accounting, fundraising, education, and human resources.
