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.
