School Board Members

Great Expectations School is a membership organization, meaning that parents, teachers, and staff elect the board. The school board must include teachers and may also include parents and community members.

School Board meetings are held the third Thursday of every month at 4:00 pm at the school, and by Zoom.

A board member will be available for the quarter hour prior to every board meeting to answer questions or listen to concerns.


  • School board members are elected for three-year staggered terms.

  • The board is comprised of no fewer than 5, but no more than 11 members.

  • Elections are held in September at the school’s annual meeting.
