The Board of Directors 

Contributing Love, Time & Energy 

At Tucson Community School, we offer many meaningful ways for parents to be present in their child's school experience. Above all, is serving on the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is a comprised of 9 elected officers from the currently enrolled family community. In collaboration with the educational director, treasurer, and classroom representatives the BOD is responsible for supervising family participation in the cooperative model to ensure all families meet the mission and goals of the school.

 

The main objectives of the Board of Directors consist of:

  • Creating a village that helps to raise our kids and strengthen our community. Our board links families to each other and other resources needed to be the best parents, families, and educators we can be. 

  • Hosting fun, educational programs, and events for our families. They also create exciting ways to raise money to support the specific needs of our school.

  • Working with staff to offer and maintain our campus. Thus, ensuring our children the opportunity to have a magical learning experience that honors childhood and allows children to grow in a safe and nurturing environment.

  • Inspiring a love of reading by organizing our own TCS library as well as providing fun opportunities for children to engage in reading and literary activities.

  • Keeping the pulse on local, state, and national policies that affect our school and larger community, so we can advocate for best practice.
