Board of Directors

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, which is comprised of 9 elected officers from currently-enrolled families. In collaboration with the educational director, treasurer, and classroom representatives, the Board of Directors is responsible for supervising family participation in the cooperative model to ensure all families meet the mission and goals of the school.

Members of the Board of Directors are required to volunteer their time once a month for board meetings, as well as contribute the necessary time to meet with assigned committees, plan events and activities, and coordinate paperwork and logistics.


​​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 to resources needed to become the best parents, families, and educators we can be. 

  • Hosting fun, educational programs and events for our families, as well as exciting fundraising opportunities to support the specific needs of our school.

  • Working with staff to maintain our campus, ensuring our children can enjoy a magical learning experience that honors childhood and enables them 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 literary activities.

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