The Lewis & Clark Montessori Board

Lewis & Clark Montessori Charter School is organized as a nonprofit organization under the laws of Oregon under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of the U.S. As such, the school is managed by a Board of Directors.

Board Meetings

The Board of Directors meets every third Thursday of the month with Community Workshop at 6:00pm and the meeting commencing at 7:00. All meetings are open to the public. We are bound by the State of Oregon’s Open Meeting Law and its Public Records Law.

Board of Directors

Board Members have the primary responsibility for fulfillment of the school’s mission and are legally accountable for its operation. The Board sets strategic goals, governs school policies and is fiscally responsible for assuring the school’s resources. The Board hires the Executive Director to develop the programs and execute the day-to-day school operation. The school’s Executive Director attends all Board meetings as an ex-officio member, reports on school operation and submits strategic recommendations.
