Apply Now - Parent Director Vacancy on the Governance Board

Nominations are open June 4 through 5pm on June 18, 2021 to fill an open parent seat on the Stargate Governance Board of Directors. Apply using Stargate's Candidate Application Form.

The parent director vacancy must be filled by June 30, 2021. It was created when Traci Nicks resigned from the Board in late May, after the spring election. Consistent with standard practice at Stargate, a Board vacancy is filled by Board appointment, and the new member serves for up to one year, until the next Board election. The term of this position will be from June 30, 2021 through June 30, 2022. If the appointed member is interested in remaining on the Board after that point, they will need to run as a candidate in the Spring 2022 election.

The Board will interview the candidates and select the new member at a special Governance Business meeting on June 29, 2021. If you are interested in the position and would like to learn more, please contact the recruiting committee at recruiting@stargateschool.org. The recruiting committee will also be reaching out to the candidates who participated in the recent Board election.
