2019-2020  School Board 

Purpose of the Board of Directors

The purpose of the Board of Directors is to oversee the school. Board responsibilities include executing the Timpanogos Academy vision, fostering relationships with staff and the school community, and overseeing the budget. Timpanogos Academy Board of Directors have a firm belief in the traditional school format, the charter school concept, and are committed to using the Core Knowledge curriculum.

Each Board of Director position, a length of three years after the initial term, is elected in a staggered rotation, with approximately two seats elected each year. In addition to their duties of attending board meetings and/or overseeing committees, board members do a significant reading and attend an annual leadership conference to orient and recommit to the school's philosophy. The Timpanogos Academy charter provides for representative governance which mandates responsiveness to constituent (parent) concerns. If parents feel that any board member is not performing in the school's best interest, a recall provision is written into the charter. We believe this provides continuity to maintain the founders' original vision, allows adequate parental control over a child's education, and includes sufficient flexibility to cope with necessary, inevitable changes.

 

Board Member Qualifications

 

  1. Be familiar with the Core Knowledge Scope and Sequence and understand the curriculum used in Open Court and Saxon Math.

  2. Be in agreement with the educational philosophy, discipline policy and administrative structure of Timpanogos Academy.

  3. Attend at least two Parent/Teacher Organization meetings a year to show support and encouragement for this vital aspect of the school. The Academy directors will not serve on the PTO board. However, Academy directors may chair and serve on PTO committees.

  4. Prior board experience is helpful but not necessary. However, a high level of professionalism and a strong desire for the success of the school is expected. The motivation for serving on the board should be to help guarantee the educational success of students.

  6. The directors will annually attend a "Board Visit Day" at the school. During this time, directors will visit classrooms, talk with the staff and become familiar with current school concerns.

  7. The directors will conduct an annual self-evaluation. Goals for the next year will also be determined at that time.

  8. Directors should fulfill their responsibilities on the board, board committees or subcommittees to their fullest capability.
