As a board member your role is to set policy, maintain the school’s vision and/or mission, promote educational excellence through advocacy, visionary leadership and high-quality services to your public school, as well as to ensure that the school complies with its charter and applicable laws.

Public School Academy Board Members are Public Officials
PSA board members are public officials appointed by the Board of Trustees of a public college in Michigan which acts as the authorizer of the school. Central Michigan and Grand Valley State have authorized the bulk of the schools in the Detroit area.

Potential board members are required to complete an application as part of the appointment process. Additionally, a personal background check will be required of all potential board members.  The appointment is for two years and is renewable.  The average board has 5 to 7 members and they meet about 10 times a year.

Demand for Public School Academy Board Members
An estimated 40 new board member seats will be available in the 2013-2014 school year. Additionally, unofficial records show seven new schools developing with plans to operate in Detroit starting in the fall of 2014. This could yield up to 35 additional board seats.
