Board of Directors

The founders of Aveson Charter Schools believed, based on evidence, the best decisions made at a school are made by those closest to the students. So at Aveson schools, Advisors (teachers) have the autonomy to make the right decisions for the students in their classrooms. The school administration also has autonomy to make the best decisions for the entire school staff and student body. The role of the Aveson Board of Directors is to oversee the outcomes of those decisions and guarantee success in the following four areas: 1) Finance, 2) Compliance, 3) Academics and 4) Fidelity of the Charters.

The following is a list of current board members:

Eric Blumberg - Chairman
Dr. Nikki Elliott
Larry Simonsen
Jennifer Carey
 
Regular board meetings are held bi-monthly, starting at 6:30 pm. Agendas and the location of the meeting are posted 72 hours in advance, inside and outside of the main office at both school campuses.
