FCS Charter CouncilForest Charter School is governed by the Charter Council, a volunteer group comprised of five parent representatives, two Supervising Teacher representatives, one community member, and one high school student representative, all voting members. The executive director and other school officials participate as non-voting members who provide educational and fiscal information and updates on the operations of the school.
The Charter Council is responsible for all recommended modifications to the FCS Charter. The Charter Council also evaluates the school annually to determine the effectiveness of the educational programs and provide direction for program improvements. The Charter Council provides input and recommendations related to the fiscal relationship between Nevada County Superintendent of Schools' overall revenues and expenditures, and the revenues and expenditures of Forest Charter School. This member body also approves salary schedules and new personnel based on the recommendations of the FCS administration.
The Charter Council meets monthly and holds an annual strategic planning meeting to set the vision for the future. The dynamic growth of the school, supported by these representatives, continues to help the Forest Charter Personalized Learning Program grow in its creativity and responsibility. Ultimately, the goal is to support the success of all students and to nurture their lifelong love of learning.
All Charter Council meetings are open to the public. Meetings are posted in appropriate places to conform to the Brown Act.
