When implemented in charter schools, the Harbor School Method requires a Board of Directors that thoroughly understands and believes in the Method. The Board of Directors supports the staff and governs the school in a manner consistent with the Harbor philosophy. The board provides the checks and balances needed for financial and legal matters. They have direct involvement in hiring the Administrator who then is responsible for the educational and day to day operations of the school.
An effective board is made of members who are willing to:
Read and understand their School’s Charter
Read, understand, and help develop School Policies
Read and understand the Idaho Open Meetings Law Manual and the Idaho Public Records Law Manual
Read and understand Idaho Code 08.02.04 – Rules Governing Public Charter Schools
Read and understand the By-Laws of their corporation (The Academy Inc.)
Attend meetings well prepared and participate fully in committee assignments
Attend training sessions
Recognize their fiduciary responsibility to the school for sound financial management
Understand the importance of their roles and are willing to work hard in a timely manner to accomplish board goals.
