One of the key differences between public charter schools and regular public schools is that we area governed by our own Board of Directors, rather than directly by the Shelby County School Board. (We also have accountability to Shelby County Schools, as they are the grantors of our public charter.) Our board reviews and votes on all major decisions, especially those financial in nature, and our Founder and CEO reports directly to the Board of Directors.

Board Meetings

In accordance with state law and stipulations in the school’s charter, Freedom Prep Academy’s bi-monthly Board of Directors meetings are open to the public. Anyone may attend; giving notice to school staff or board members is not necessary. In the 2020-21 school year, meetings are held virtually on ZOOM due to the COVID-19 health pandemic, as indicated on the calendar below.
