Peace Valley Charter School has openings on our governing board and all interested members of the community are encouraged to apply or refer other potentially interested individuals. It is our desire to build a board of members from both inside and outside the school parent community to better represent the Treasure Valley community. We are particularly interested in candidates with skills or experience in the following areas: Legal, Education, Fundraising, and Business/Executive. Waldorf or Charter School Board experience is helpful, but not required.
Board members are responsible for the academic, financial, and organizational performance of the School. The Charter Board also has responsibility for policy and operational decisions of the school. The Board holds regularly scheduled monthly meetings and additional meetings as needed.
In order to be considered, the candidate must have attended at least one Board meeting prior to appointment. Our next meeting is scheduled for March 11th at 5:30pm at the school.
To apply, prospective candidates will submit a letter of interest, including a statement on their motivation to join the Board, and include a copy of their resume or CV. We also ask candidates to review the Idaho Charter Commission's Conflict of Interest Survey: https://chartercommission.idaho.gov/resources/board-governance-conflict-of-interest-survey/ in order to identify any potential conflicts of interest.
Candidates will be interviewed in a public session at the next Board meeting. Candidates will then be discussed during open session and Board members will make nominations and vote to accept new Board members to be sworn in at the next Board meeting.
If accepted, Board members must submit to a background check. Forms for this are available at the front office of the school and the cost is about $34.
It is also an expectation that new Board members read Understanding Waldorf by Jack Petrash (available at the Boise public library).
Please send applications and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much for your willingness to serve our school!
