Join our Governing Board

TEACH Public Schools is recruiting diverse leaders for an open seat on its Governing Board!  

 

TEACH Public Schools is comprised of three public charter schools currently serving grades K-12 that focuses on college preparation through the incorporation of technology and project-based learning.  The schools serve the South Central Los Angeles community. Information about each of our schools can be found on our website teachpublicschools.org.

 

Our board members champion the importance of exceptional board leadership and believe that every organization needs a strong and effective board to fully realize its potential for good. In addition to the standard roles and responsibilities of a board member, our board members are active advocates and ambassadors for TEACH schools. They are fully engaged in identifying and securing the financial resources and partnerships necessary to advance its mission.

 

Serving on the TEACH Board of Directors is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual who is passionate about strengthening leadership and governance in the public education sector.

Compensation:

This is an unpaid, volunteer position.
