Facilities and Playground Update

Facilities upgrades, playground structures, maintenance and new construction are a big thing here at Reach. We started this process upon our 2016 arrival and know that site improvements will be in continuous motion for the next few years. Much of this work is dependent upon the generous donations of our parents and the larger community. Please consider a pledge by clicking the pledge button on the left. See the attached letter from the Facilities Committee for more information.

REACH Parent Foundation (RPF) and Board of Directors

The REACH School Board of Directors

The REACH Parent Foundation (RPF) is a non-profit 501c3 organization established for the purpose of operating a California charter school (Link to REACH Charter).  The foundation is operated by a Board of Directors that is charged with monitoring the school’s fiscal responsibilities, staffing, and facilities. The board typically meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month. We encourage REACH families and community members to attend board meetings as a way of staying connected to the bigger picture decisions that are made at this level of the organization.

We also encourage parents and community members to consider applying to become a RPF member of the Board of Directors. The RPF strives to recruit board members with a passion for creating a high quality learning environment for our students. Please contact the RPF President of the Board of Directors, Angie Powers, for more information at angie@angiepowers.com.

Here is a list of current board members and their contact information.
