Lotus School for Excellence is looking for new board members.  Being a school board member is one of the ways that the community can support and impact Lotus.

School Board Announcements

School Boards at Lotus are composed of unpaid, elected representatives who are selected to represent their community in school decisions.
Family members and community members are eligible to run for the school board.  The school bylaws require that at least one board member is a parent or guardian of a current Lotus student.  Generally, paid staff members wouldn’t be able to run for the school board because of the conflict of interest between the role of the school board and the role of a staff member.
Each school board member is elected to serve a three-year terms and the terms of the school board are staggered so that 1-2 board members end their term each year.
The school generally looks for members who have expertise in an area that directly benefits the school. Some of the skills that might make a strong board member are experience or expertise in the following areas: Finance Legal Marketing Human Resources Education Non-profits Community Partnerships Management Experience on other boards A passion for Lotus
