Dear Parents, Friends and Community Partners of Riverwalk Academy,
The Board of Directors will be hosting an election to fill two open slots on the Riverwalk Academy Board. The Board is sincerely thankful for all of the parent support and excitement as our teachers and students are finishing final products of their learning this year. Further, taking time to reflect on their accomplishments this year.
As we move towards the school year ahead (2017-2018), it is important that we all understand the role of our Board and how to serve if you feel called. As a Charter School, Riverwalk Academy has its own governing board comprised of school parents, grandparents, community members, business individuals and educators - as selected by the school's parents and staff. These board members oversee the MISSION of the school, ensuring that the integrity of the charter is maintained.
As a member of the South Carolina Charter School Alliance, they support us in maintaining and meeting our Charter. The Riverwalk Academy Charter requires us to host the live Board Application until 5 pm on Wednesday, May 31st, due to the Memorial Day holiday.
We welcome all interested to apply. In order to apply, one must complete the online application. The South Carolina Charter School Alliance directs, gathers, and sets the timeline, according to our charter for this process. The application is available at this web link: https://pcsasc.memberclicks.net/index.php?option=com_mc&view=mc&mcid=form_239250
Once all applications have been reviewed, the online election will be held from 8:00 a.m. on June 6th and will close at 5 p.m. on June 7th. It is important that as we move forward, that each of you review all individuals interested in serving so that our Board can move forward with people who have skills to help us achieve our mission.
Elected Individuals will be introduced and inducted at the June meeting. This meeting is scheduled forJune 12th at 7:00 p.m.
