Stargate Governance 101:
What changes are being proposed to the Bylaws? As part of the preparations to expand Stargate to a K-12, the Board met for a half-day retreat last fall to ensure the Bylaws align to support a K-12 school. In our review we also consulted Charter School experts to advise us in Charter best practices. While we encourage you to read the redlined version of the Bylaws, the board has created a summary and FAQ sheet to help you understand what and why changes are being proposed. You can find those documents on the forms and files governance webpage or by clicking HERE.
