The Lewis & Clark Montessori Charter School is organized as a nonprofit organization under the laws of Oregon and under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. As such, the School is managed by a Board of Directors, which has the primary responsibility for fulfilling the school’s mission and is legally accountable for its operation.
The Board of Directors sets strategic goals, establishes school policies, is responsible for the organization’s financial health, and ensures compliance with the Charter Agreement between the School and the Gresham-Barlow School District.
Additionally, the Board hires the Executive Director to develop the programs and carry out the School’s day-to-day operations. The Executive Director attends all Board meetings as an ex-officio member, reports on school operation and submits strategic recommendations.
All meetings and activities of the Lewis & Clark Montessori Charter School Board of Directors are subject to the State of Oregon’s open meeting and public records laws. Our parent community and the public are welcome to attend any meeting of the Board of Directors.
