Charter School Boards

The primary difference between charter public schools and traditional public schools is the governance structure. Charter schools are run by boards whose role is to set policy, maintain the academy’s vision and/or mission, promote educational excellence through advocacy, visionary leadership, and high-quality services. They are charged with ensuring that schools comply with their charter and all applicable laws. Academy board members are expected to, among other things, manage resources effectively and in a manner that engenders public trust, ensure effective organizational planning, support and review the performance of the school leader and education service provider, and maintain accountability.

Academy board members are public officials who are appointed by Detroit Public Schools Community District and swear a constitutional oath of office. All board members must be Michigan residents and U.S. citizens.
