Apply to Join an Oakland Charter School Board
Are you prepared to play an important role in improving the quality of public education for all students in Oakland? Serving on one of our Oakland charter school boards is a great way to get involved.
Charter schools are locally governed by their own board of directors. Our charter boards are made up of committed and dedicated professionals and community members. Like our public charter schools, our boards are also locally grown with deep Oakland roots.
Joining a charter school board is a real commitment. Charter school boards play a critical role in determining the quality of educational programs for each school. Charter boards provide critical oversight for publicly funded nonprofit organizations that have multi-million dollar budgets.
Charter school board service is a rewarding opportunity. Oakland Charters can help you to learn more about this important community service.
Oakland Charters can:
- Help you understand if you are ready for the opportunity and responsibility of charter board service
- Match you with a charter school board based on your background and needs of the schools
- Provide professional development, technical assistance, and networking opportunities as you dive into the work
