  3. The opportunity to collaborate with a diverse group of business and community leaders from around the Region who are passionate about achieving quality in education. 

Expectations of Applicants

This checklist is designed to help you determine if you have the time, experience, and availability to be a part of the Detroit Charter Board Leadership Program and ultimately serve on a charter school board.

  1. I believe all children can reach the highest level of academic achievement regardless of income level, demographics, family background, etc.
  2. I am a seasoned professional with demonstrated success and experience in one or more relevant professional fields (e.g., finance, operations, education, law, human resources, marketing, fundraising).
  3. I have 3 to 6 hours a month, year-round, to devote to board service.
  4. I can commit to being highly responsive (generally within a day or two) to emails from school leadership, legal counsel, fellow board members.
  5. I can commit to attending board meetings (typically once a month or once every other month) and committee meetings, if applicable (the same) and am willing to make a concerted effort to avoid missing meetings.
  6. I would welcome the opportunity to serve as an ambassador for the school, telling my friends and colleagues about the school and its mission.
