Board of Education

An Introduction to the Board

WCS Board 2023-24

The Woods Charter School Company is governed by a Board of Directors. Each year the parents and teachers vote for board members, who serve two or three year terms on staggered cycles (see bylaws for specific details).  The seven elected, voting members of the Board are all parents. Other members of the Board are a teacher representative elected by the full-time staff, a student representative elected by the students, and the principal.  A "community" board member may, from time to time, be appointed by the Board; the community board member may or may not be a parent.  The Board sets policy and governs the school, while the principal manages the school on a day-to-day basis.

The Board generally meets on the third Thursday of the month, with four exceptions this school year: the August Board Retreat and the June meeting have been shifted to occur while school is in session, and the October and December meetings have been moved owing to the positioning of school holidaysMeetings begin at 7:00 p.m. in The Glade.  All meetings are open meetings, and Woods families are encouraged to attend.
