Board Memo – February 21

Board Memo – February 21
Posted on 02/21/2017

Dear RMAE Community:

Thanks to all who attended the February 9 Board meeting. For those not in attendance, we would like to provide an update on noteworthy discussion items from the meeting.

First, a reminder that the search for a new school Director/Principal is underway. The job description/application has been posted on numerous job boards/websites including Jeffco, the Colorado League of Charter Schools, RMAE and others. Finding the best and most qualified candidates for the role is critical to the process, which is why your support in helping spread the word is also appreciated – feel free to share the job description/application on LinkedIn, Facebook or wherever else you think would help us attract applicants.

The process is being led by the recently formed Search Committee. The 15-member Search Committee has broad representation across parents, teachers and staff, many of whom also represent various school leadership groups and other key constituencies (Board, teachers, aides, administration, PTO, and SAC). We are also happy to have the involvement of Tim Matlick, Academic Director at Jeffco on the committee. Members of the Search Committee presented a three-stage screening process and timeline to the Board. The three-stage process consists of 1) initial screening of applications by the Search Committee, 2) Search Committee interviews (note: these will be open to the public to observe – more details to be provided), and lastly, 3) recommendation of the three most qualified candidates to the Board. The Board will then set dates/times to interview the finalists and make a hiring decision. We will continue to keep you informed as the process moves along.

Another topic of note was the Board’s discussion of the election process, including a review of the election process as governed by the Bylaws and other considerations. The overarching goal is to ensure that we perpetuate stability for the School’s governing body as its transitions to a new school year with a new Director/Principal. To help further inform our decision as how best to proceed, we are requesting that you please take 1-minute to respond to a 1-question survey. The Board elections/election process will again be discussed and formalized at the March Board meeting.

Lastly, a reminder that RMAE Annual Giving is ongoing, and as of this week, approximately 31 families have donated almost $25,000 to the school (more than 50% of the way to the target of $45,000!). Please remember to send in your donations(PDF form) or go online to contribute to RMAE – your support of RMAE is especially important and very much appreciated this year!

With Thanks for Your Continued Support,

Your Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen Board of Directors:
Kyle Stults, President
Mike Geiger, Secretary
Don Middleton, Community Rep
Amy Broxterman, Vice President
Jim Good, Parent Representative
Chris Lindsay, Parent Representative
Gil Gomez, Treasurer
