The Academy for Science and Design Charter School is governed by a 15-member Board of Trustees that has general supervisory control and authority over the operations of the school. The Board has a statutory responsibility for reporting progress and achievement of the school’s stated goals to the State of New Hampshire Department of Education. The Board meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month, 6:30-8:30pm, at the Academy for Science and Design.
Trustee selection is based upon personal and professional background, commitment to the school’s mission, and support and sustainability while representing the diversity of stakeholders and contributors to the extent possible. The Board is currently recruiting to fill the remaining available seats from interested members of the community who share the school’s vision.
While the Board acts as one body, it works through committees to support the administration and the school in various areas of governance and activities. Committees and the number of committees can change. The Board specifically reviews and considers its committees at its Annual Board Meeting in June but new committee's can be called or dissolved at any time. The Board may approve sub-committees to complete a very specific task.
