Volunteers are invited to help the Volcano community by serving on the Governing Board of the Volcano School of Arts and Sciences.
Applications are being accepted for the upcoming term that starts in August.
The Governing Board is responsible for the financial, organizational and academic viability of the charter school and implementation of the charter.
The Governing Board consists of representatives from the community, staff and parents of children attending the school. Members serve two-year terms staggered with members of the current board. The representatives are elected by the current board at the July meeting.
Each member is expected to attend monthly meetings, usually the third Thursday of the month at the Keakealani Campus, as well as serve on at least one committee.
“Being a board member is such a rewarding experience. Although there is a commitment of about 10 hours or more a month, seeing positive things get done for the benefit of the students and the community is very satisfying,” said current board chairperson John Broward. “If you, too, want to serve on the board and make a positive contribution of this and future generations of Hawaii keiki, then please submit the application form or a brief bio with your name and contact information.”
Send information to: Volcano School Governing Board, P.O. Box 845, Volcano, HI 96785. You also can email VSBOARD@hotmail.com, or download an application form from the school’s website at volcanoschool.com.
