Greetings from the Board
Everyone works together to continue Reid Traditional Schools’s long tradition of excellence. Visit our board meetings, help in the classrooms, or assist with school activities. Together we make Reid Traditional Schools campuses great places to work and learn.
Board meetings are scheduled for the fourth Thursday of every month, unless otherwise posted.
About the Board of Directors
Reid Traditional Schools’ is a private non-profit corporation. It self-selects new members based on the Board’s needs and applicants’ dedication to preserving and protecting the school and the charter. Members of the Board of Directors are unpaid volunteers.
Each member serves a three-year term. To the extent possible, terms are staggered to maintain a balance of experience on the Board. In accordance with Arizona law, Board members may serve for an unlimited number of terms.
The Reid Traditional Schools’ Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that all Reid schools supply a public traditional, back-to-basics education in accordance with the schools’ charters.
The responsibility to oversee and administer programs and policies rests with the Chief Executive Officer, who is hired and supervised by the Board. The CEO hires and supervises the Principal of all Reid schools.
The advice of the public (primarily client parents and guardians) and employees is given careful consideration before action is taken on any item. The Board’s first concerns are for the educational program as it affects students, the charter, and compliance with all applicable state and federal regulations. Final decisions may depart from the advice of the public when, in the judgment of the Board, such advice is not consistent with the charter, the school’s focus and goals, or within reach of available financial resources.
Regular meetings of the Governing Board are usually held on the fourth Thursday of each month. However changes are made to avoid holidays and when quorum is unavailable. Special meetings are called as needed, usually to meet compliance with applicable regulations or to facilitate efficient business operations. The board may occasionally adjourn into Executive Session, which is a private meeting closed to the public, only under certain circumstances as prescribed by law. All meetings except Executive Sessions are open to the public, and everyone is encouraged to attend.
