Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy


The Board of Directors is excited for the 2016-2017 school year.  We look forward to working Ms. Cuneo, our Executive Director, to fulfill Scholars Academy’s mission.


The majority of our directors are parents of students at Scholars Academy, as specified in our charter and by-laws (see webpage on current members for brief bios). In addition to our monthly board meetings, members also devote time to committee meetings and board training/retreats. We request nominations for new members each year in the spring to join the board in July. While we hope for diverse representation, we do have specific needs for members with legal, accounting/finance, educational, marketing or communications experience.


Over the past year, we have worked hard to improve our board operations and processes.  The daily operations and management of Scholars Academy are the primary responsibilities of the Executive Director and staff. Our primary responsibilities include:

  1. Ensuring the academic program is successful

       2 . Confirming the school’s operational programs are faithful to the charter and other legal


  1. Maintaining a viable organization (e.g. financially solvent and competent professional staff based on our hiring and evaluation of the Executive Director)

Our monthly meetings are open to the public and are typically held the fourth Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. (future dates are posted on the school’s calendar).  For those unable to attend meetings in person, a tele-conference line is provided on the agendas that are posted a few days before the meetings.  For quick reference, the dial in number is also listed below. The minutes for prior meetings are posted on the Board of Directors webpage on the school’s website.  At each meeting, we allow time for comments from the community.  Since these meetings are official records for the school, we have specific parameters to receive and respond to such comments.  Please refer to the community comments guidelines  on this page for more information.


We invite you to explore the other Board related information here on the website, including the power point below, for more information on our board operations and current year focus. We hope to see you at a meeting soon.
