Board of Directors

About the Board

The Board of Directors (BOD) sets the direction for the school and the staff takes us there. The director and staff run the school's day-to-day operations. The BOD sets policies and curriculum and ensures that MSA meets the requirements of MSA’s authorizer and its charter . The BOD is composed of MSA teachers, parents, community members, and the director.
