NYOS Charter School

Executive Director's Corner

March, 2017 

Dear NYOS Community, 

Did you know that NYOS is governed by a School Board whose members include four parents, four teachers and five Community members?  School Board members meet once per month to discuss and vote on matters for the school.  Agenda items can include school policies, budgets, legislation, goal-setting, student outcomes and other important topics.  We hope you will join us at upcoming NYOS Board meetings on March 9, April 20, and May 11.  All meetings are at 6:00pm in the Kramer campus library at 1605 Kramer Lane. 

Elections for the NYOS School Board are coming up in May 2017.  Parents and teachers serve two-year terms.  Community members serve one-year terms.  The School Board is specifically looking for people with skills in commercial property development, finance or accounting, real estate, connections within state and local governments, and legal skill.  If you possess these skills or have a friend/colleague who does, encourage them to reach out and learn more.  I am happy to talk more about the roles.  Existing Board members can also share their experiences on the Board. 

Topics for the 2017-2018 school year will focus on developing the new property next door at 12309 N Lamar Blvd.  The School Board will also be working through any new laws affecting charter schools from the current legislative session. 

NYOS holds Board elections in May, so be sure to let me know pretty soon if you are interested.  I can be reached by phone at (512)583-6967 ext. 374 or kzimmermann@nyos.org.

 

Regards,

Kathleen Zimmermann
