Governance

Aerial Steamboat Montessori

As a public school authorized by the Colorado Charter School Institute, Steamboat Montessori operates under an approved Charter, and is overseen by a volunteer governance board that adheres to established by-laws. This board has a vested interest in ensuring the best possible outcomes for our student population, in alignment with a Montessori model. The board meets on a monthly basis during the school year; meetings are open to the public and conducted virtually as of the Spring of 2020. Links to upcoming meetings, as well as minutes and recordings of past meetings, can be found on the bottom of this page.

Priority for prospective board members is given to those who represent community interest, or who have unique acumen in business, governance, law or education. Board appointments are made annually in June by a vote of the board, and terms last 3 years. The Board also oversees several committees; these groups meet regularly, and always welcome interested participants to join. Committee meetings, as well as board meetings, are open to the public.

Links to meeting agendas and the public virtual meetings can be found in the tabs below.

If you are interested in participation on the board or on any board-related committees, please contact the Front Desk to learn more.
