Watershed Public Charter School operates as a non-profit public benefit organization, and therefore has a governing board, the Board of Directors. Board members receive no compensation other than reimbursement of actual expenses incurred while fulfilling duties as a member of such a board. The Watershed Board is responsible for oversight of all aspects of school and community operations, and ensures that the Watershed mission and vision are followed in accordance with our Charter Agreement with the Board of Education. Our current focus is expansion of our current board membership, the addition of Middle School, and our upcoming 2023-2024 Charter Renewal process.
Watershed Board meetings are the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:00PM EDT via Google Meet. The board of Watershed Public Charter School values and encourages input and feedback from the public during board meetings. If you would like to make public comment at an upcoming board meeting, email email@example.com. Board members will not respond to public comments within the same board meeting except to ask clarifying questions.
When speaking, speakers are asked to give their full name and be respectful of the board and members of the public when speaking. Speakers should address members of the board and be ready to respond to questions for clarification from the board if asked. The board does not discuss personnel matters in open board meetings. Inappropriate comments or behavior are discouraged. Inappropriate behavior is defined as insults, obscenities or profanity, attacks against any person in their personal capacity, and/or physical violence or threat thereof.
