Our School Board

Swan River Montessori Charter School is governed by its own school board comprised of teachers, parents and community members. All members are elected to the board and serve three year terms.

Should you wish to contact any member of the School Board, you may send an email at the addresses listed below.  Any email correspondence received will be forwarded to every member prior to the upcoming board meeting.  Any response from the board (if applicable) will be given by the board chair either before or after the next board meeting takes place.  If your correspondence is a grievance, please read the grievance policy (listed under the School Policies tab) and follow all steps listed prior to your submission.  The board will not accept any grievances without all of the policy steps being followed.
