Charter School Board Opportunities

Charter Success Partners is always seeking new community based board members for our existing and upcoming partner schools. 


Serving on the board of a charter school is an opportunity to have a meaningful impact locally in your community and a far-reaching impact helping to provide a quality education for hundreds of students.


Responsibilities of a board member:

  • Uphold the school mission and by-laws

  • Establish, review and revise (as necessary) the policies of the school

  • Oversee and ensure fiscal responsibility in the operation of the school

  • Work with the school administration to support day to day operation of the school

  • Monitor operations to ensure financial security and strategic planning

  • Evaluate and update the job responsibilities of the Managing Director

  • Select and evaluate the Managing Director; confirm hiring of school personnel 

  • Attend Board meetings as scheduled and school functions as appropriate

  • Serve on at least one board subcommittee needed for the operation of the school


While a background in education is always a plus, it is not necessary to enact meaningful change through this position. We are looking for local community leaders and people with experience in non-profits, finance, real estate, legal fields, and more. Here are some additional qualifications:

  • advocating for public education in NC, and the charter school role in the public education system

  • having experience and/or a skill set that adds value to the work of the Board

  • having the respect of those with whom you have previously worked

  • having a desire to be an active Board member in a non-profit organization

  • being a team member who can provide solutions and a positive attitude

  • Being a resident of good standing in North Carolina.
