Who will be the school board or leadership for this new “district?”

If the schools convert, the proposed governance structure, in keeping with statutory requirements for charter schools, would be a governing board. The details are below.

  • 5 seats
    • 3 seats appointed by the City of Newberry Commission (individuals not holding commissioner positions, with at least one being a teacher nominated representative)
    • 1 appointed by City of Archer Commission, but may not be commissioners
    • 1 appointed from Education First
  • Appointment to take place after passage
  • Initial term of 2 years
  • Overall governance structure to be reviewed within that first two year period for confirmation of fit or adjustment if needed

See the "What is a Governing Board" FAQ for more detailed information.
