[The 2020 nomination window has now closed.]
Are you, or someone you know, seeking a rewarding way to contribute directly to the charter sector's leadership and impact?
The Colorado League of Charter Schools is one of the strongest charter support organizations in the nation. The League's purpose is to serve, protect, champion and grow the Colorado charter sector. The League has a 26-year history of accomplishments, a remarkable leadership network, and an opportunity to transform public education in Colorado.
The League is seeking nominations for school leaders from high-quality charter schools to serve alongside state leaders on its Board of Directors. If you know of someone who meets the nomination criteria below, please click here to nominate them. Self-nominations are welcome and encouraged.
The nomination window is open from now through January 17, 2020 EOD. Consistent with the League's bylaws, qualified nominees will meet with the stakeholder committee to learn more about board membership and the League's work. The board will determine which candidates to recommend to the membership after considering each nominee on a case by case basis.
There are three (3) seats available for school representatives starting in 2020. Don't miss this opportunity to have a representative of your school help to shape the League's direction and impact.
Candidates will have an opportunity to present themselves to membership at the Member Forum at the Annual Conference, March 13. Elections will end at noon on March 13. Each member school is allowed one vote from a representative.
