Dear Prospective Board Members:
I’m pleased to share with you some information on Falls Lake Academy and invite you to apply for an open position on our Board of Directors. As a member of the Board at FLA, you will be directly involved in ensuring that the mission of one of Granville County’s most successful schools stays aligned to our strategic plan.
Since opening in 2013, Falls Lake Academy has grown from a K-8 school housed in mobile units to Granville County’s first and only K-12 public charter school now occupying two facilities on a 25-acre campus in Creedmoor, NC. We opened our brand new high school building and gym in August of 2018 and graduated our first class of seniors in June of 2019.
Falls Lake Academy is a Project-Based Learning School. All grade levels engage in projects that reflect real-life problems and solutions that allow for student voice and choice and involve a public audience for presentations of learning. Falls Lake Academy is also accredited by AdvancEd.
The duties of charter Board members are to oversee all matters pertaining to the governance and operation of Falls Lake Academy. The Board of Directors meets monthly on the first Tuesday of each month. Our business meetings usually last two hours or less. Committees meet as needed before the monthly meetings and comprise the agenda of the business meeting. Terms are three years in length beginning in March.
Candidates who want to leverage their strengths and talents to ensure that we continue to create mission-aligned strategies that support and nurture the success of our students and staff at Falls Lake are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates that are familiar with and support our mission and strategic goals should email a cover letter expressing why they are interested in serving on the board along with a resume to Samantha Dale at firstname.lastname@example.org. Interviews will begin in January. Thank you for your interest in serving as a Board member of Falls Lake Academy.
Jill L. Pike, FLA Board of Directors.
