Update on Reauthorization of the CAIS Charter
Mr. Benavidez and representatives of the Governing Council have been continuing to research reauthorization with APS and the Public Education Commission. Due to turnover in the APS charter school division and some other shifts, we will revisit at our August meeting whether we should reauthorize with APS or the PEC. After the discussion, there will be a motion to authorize Mr. Benavidez to apply for reauthorization with APS or the PEC.
What are the responsibilities of the Governing Council?
The Governing Council meets monthly, and meetings are open to all community members. The GC is responsible for approving school policies, major contracts, and the school’s annual budget. The GC oversees the school’s financial affairs and is responsible for selecting and evaluating the director.
How do I share my ideas with the Governing Council?
Governing Council meetings are held in the multipurpose room and begin with public forum. Community members are invited to sign up before the meeting to speak during public forum. Each person is given two minutes to address an issue on the agenda or any other issue or celebration that you feel is important to bring before the council. The Governing Council can also be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your concerns and comments are important to us, please share them with us.
