Qualifications and Requirements of Directors:

Snowy Range Academy Board of Directors shall have a firm belief in the fundamental, traditional school format, and be committed to using the Core Knowledge and Spalding curriculum. Directors shall be fully committed to the charter school concept.

The purpose of the Board of Directors is to set the general direction and policy of the school, not manage it on a daily basis. Board members shall develop and carry out the Snowy Range Academy vision and mission, foster good relationships with staff and faculty, the school community and the community at large, oversee the budget, and plan for the future of the school.

Prospective board members should:

  • Become familiar with the SRA charter application, contract, by-laws, policies, and procedures.
  • Read E.D. Hirsch's book "Cultural Literacy" and "The Schools We Need and Why We Don't Have Them" (available for check-out from the SRA Library).
  • Become familiar with the Core Knowledge Scope and Sequence and Spalding Language Arts curriculum.
  • Understand additional curriculum used by our school.
  • Be in agreement with the educational philosophy, discipline policy and administrative structure of our school.
  • Candidates for the Board of Directors shall not campaign on the Charter School premises, in any Charter School newsletter, or on the Charter School website.  This restriction does not prohibit the Charter School from being used as the election place and this does not prohibit mock conventions, caucuses, or student elections;
  • Only one family member may serve on the Board of Directors at any one time.  This restriction does not prohibit family members of a Director from serving on standing committees;
  • All Directors must agree to sign a contract with SRA defining and accepting their role as a Director.
