Board of Directors

Grand Rapids Child Discovery Center is a free, public, non-profit charter school. The Grand Rapids Public School district is our charter authorizer. As such, our school is autonomously governed by a Board of Directors. The role of the Board at our school is to govern- the Board hires, manages, and evaluates the Executive Director, approves and oversees the budget, ensures the school is in compliance with laws and regulations, and sets and/or approves the policies which govern the running of the school. The detailed workings of the board can be found in the first section of the Board Policy Book).

Regular meetings of the Grand Rapids Child Discovery Center Board of Directors will be held the second Monday of each month during the academic year, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Please see our meeting schedule below. Working teams also meet in the areas of development, finance, facility, and equity.
