ALL MEETINGS ARE PUBLIC MEETINGS. Network Charter School is bound by the State of Oregon's Open Meeting Law and its Public Records Law. However, the law (ORS 192.660.(2)(a-i)) allows the Board to consider, in private, certain sensitive matters that should not be general public knowledge. The Board is allowed to use the executive session, as needed, to consider:

  • employment of staff members

  • discipline, complaints or charges against employees

  • labor negotiations

  • real property transactions

  • information or records exempt from public inspection

  • legal rights and duties regarding current or pending litigation

  • employment-related performance of any employee who does not request a public hearing

Network Charter School is organized as a nonprofit organization under the laws of Oregon and has received tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of the U.S. As a nonprofit corporation, the school is managed by the Board of Directors.

Board members have the primary responsibility for fulfillment of the school's mission and are legally accountable for its operations. The Executive Director and the Principal attend all Board meetings but are not voting members. The Board sets school policies and is fiscally responsible for the school's resources. The Board selects and evaluates the Principal and the Executive Director, who are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the school.
