2.01 – Board of Directors
The primary role of the PCK Board is to set policy for the Administration to carry out, and to oversee the school’s finances. The PCK Board meets monthly at a set time and night per month. Meeting dates and times, along with a meeting agenda, are posted at least 24 hours in advance at the school and on the school’s website. Meetings are open to all PCK parents.
The PCK Board of Directors consists of ten members who govern PCK: Seven (7) elected parents who serve as voting members, the School Director (Ex-Officio member) who is a non-voting member), a Staff Rep (Vice-Director) who is non-voting, and a Teacher Rep, who is also non-voting. Parents are elected for three year cycles, with a rotation of 2-2-3, and the Teacher Rep serves a two year term. The School Director is automatically a member of the Board, and the Staff Rep is appointed by the Board. Parents may find a list of all PCK Board members on the school’s website (Link to Board of Directors).
Parents who wish to provide input or raise a concern to the Board will note the following guidelines:
- All input to the Board must be in writing and should be sent to the Board President at least one week prior to the next calendar meeting.
- All written input provided in advance will be shared with all Board members for review prior to the Board meeting.
- Parents who attend the Board meeting and present their request/concern will be allocated a time slot on the meeting agenda
- The Board President or designee will follow-up with the parent presenter within one week following the Board meeting to communicate any decision, resolution or to request further information
