Governing Board

One of the cornerstones of our school is the belief that education is a cooperative process involving students, teachers, parents and the greater community. The Governing Board reflects this cooperative spirit. The Bellevue-Santa Fe Governing Board is composed of seven voting members with representatives from the school staff, a respected community member, and the parents or family of students. The Governing Board’s primary function is to make and oversee policy concerning the operation of the school, including budget development, charter accountability and revision, and bylaws.
