REACH Parent Foundation (RPF) and Board of Directors

171108 RPF Regular Meeting Agenda-1

Regular Meeting Wednesday November 8th, 2017 6:30pm

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.
