The board is responsible for developing, implementing, and assessing policy; instituting sound employee relations; conducting open meetings; recognizing and conforming to the legal mandates imposed by state and federal laws; and governing within the limits of the delegation of state authority as a non-profit and public school board.

Additionally, the board has an obligation to assess its successes and challenges, inform the public of all deliberations and decisions, promote accountability, avoid abuse of power, enhance public understanding of its mission, conform to standards of ethical behavior, provide a framework for setting goals, and develop strategic plans for the accomplishment of those goals.

The Athlos Academy of St. Cloud governing board currently has vacancies and is seeking members of the community, specifically parents of current Athlos students, to serve on the board. Interested persons should fill out a board interest form and submit it along with your resume to no later than January 20, 2020.

All applicants will be invited to the board meeting on January 27 to introduce themselves to the board and be interviewed by the currently seated board members. A vote for appointment to the board is expected to take place at the January meeting, with new board members being seated in February.
