School seeks board members
If you have ever wondered what you could do to help future generations, then maybe the Governing Board of the Volcano School of Arts and Sciences (VSAS) is for you. The school is currently seeking applications 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. Board members made up of representatives from the community and parents of children attending the school 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 held on the third Thursday of the month at the Keakealani Campus, as well as serve on at least one committee.
“Being a board member can require an average of four to 12 hours a month of your time, but it is such a rewarding experience to be a part of,” said current Chair Danielle Foster. “There are several large projects coming up and being on the board at this time offers an excellent opportunity to have a voice for the future of our school and the local community.”
Foster said VSAS is in the process of developing a new campus, complying with the new Hawaii state law that regulates charter schools known as “Act 130” and preparing for renewal of its accreditation.
Please submit the application form or a brief bio with your name and contact information to VSAS office: Volcano School Governing Board, PO Box 845, Volcano, HI 96785. Or email VSBOARD@hotmail.com.
