Connecting Great Candidates and Great Schools

Are you passionate about ensuring every kid in Nevada has access to a high-quality school and can live the life they dream? Volunteering to serve on a public charter school board is a rewarding experience and a great way to get involved.

If you see a charter school that is advancing on its mission and vision, and where students are thriving and meeting grade level performance, then you can be sure that there is a strong, effective, student-centered board behind the scenes. Public charter school board members hold a special position to create the right conditions for every student to reach their dreams.

The Charter School Board Matching Portal brings together committed and passionate individiuals and public charter schools in Nevada who: 1) have an unwavering belief that every kid can succeed, 2) put students at the center of decision making, and 3) are committed to ensuring better educational outcomes. 

What is charter school board service?

Public charter schools in Nevada are free public schools open to all students. Public charter schools are locally governed by their own board of directors, made up of committed and dedicated professionals, parents and caregivers, and community members. Charter school board members play an important role in fostering thriving educational environments and ensuring the success of every student.

Your service as a board member could prove invaluable to a current or future public charter school if you:

  • Have an unwavering belief that every kid can succeed and deserves access to a great school in their neighborhood.
  • Are committed to advancing racial justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion for all kids.
  • Are a parent/guardian or community member who is passionate about making a difference.
  • Possess expertise in fields such as education, law, human resources, business, real estate, accounting/finance, grants, real estate, marketing, fundraising, and/or other specialties.
  • Can commit dedicated time to attend board meetings and fulfill other board obligations.
  • Are ready to invest in your own development as a board member by engaging with resources to support your effectiveness in the role.
