Governance Board, District and School policies

Stargate, like other Charter schools, is independently managed by a Governance board with the autonomy to pursue the school's educational objectives.

  • School policies are provided in the Community Handbook, a reference guide for parents, students and staff. Community members are asked to read all parts of the document and discuss them with your student so that you may be fully informed of any/all changes and applicable district policies.
  • Governance Board policies can be broken into 3 main categories: Governance, Financial and Human Resources. As the governing entity, the Board is charged with developing school policies and setting goals and expectations. The school's leadership staff, including its Executive Directors, are tasked with implementing the Board’s policies and carrying out the school’s academic and operational programs on a day-to-day basis.

Community Handbook

About the Community Handbook. The Community Handbook is dedicated to the people of Stargate School, our teachers, staff, parents and students, who make our school a place of excellence, dynamic learning and fun. We have included Adams 12 District policies in the Community Handbook. Where these policies are referenced, we have linked the Adams 12 policy. Policies and Handbooks are reviewed prior to the beginning of each school year. Stargate reserves the right to modify, supplement, rescind or revise any provision, benefit or policy from time to time as it deems necessary or appropriate.

Governing Documents & Board Policies

About Stargate Board Policies. Formal record of policies is maintained in the minutes of the Board of Directors. The Board typically reviews its policy manual at least annually. For more information about Stargate governing documents and Board policies, email governance@stargateschool.org.
