Board Application

Like other public schools, the board of a Public School Academy (Charter School) is composed of Michigan citizens who volunteer their time and expertise. However, unlike other public schools, a charter school board member is appointed rather than elected.

In order to become a board member of a charter school, a candidate must be nominated by a local charter school board, complete an application for board service, successfully pass a background check, interview with a representative of the GVSU Charter School Office, be approved by the Grand Valley State University Board of Trustees, and take the public oath of office.

Reference the links on this page for the information and forms necessary to nominate and approve a new board member.
