PSA Associate Director, Karen Lloyd, facilitated two New Board Member Orientations attended by 11 Public School Academy Board Members at The Office Coffee Shop in Royal Oak. Orientations are allied with the Office of Public School Academies belief that board members who are properly informed establish good governance principles and contribute to successful board membership. The orientation session focused on the “nuts & bolts” of board membership including school district documents, charter contracts and applicable laws. Subsequent sessions will include academic achievement measures, fiscal responsibility, and community involvement.
