The PACT Charter School Board of Directors agrees to uphold the mission of PACT to partner as parents, students, and staff to develop students of character and academic excellence. The Board provides overall direction for PACT's development and growth, evaluates the Executive Directors, approves all significant educational and operational policies, and monitors compliance.

The Board consists of parents, teachers, and a community representative. All members are elected to the Board, unless an opening occurs mid-term, in which case the Board has authority to fill that position by appointment. The Executive Directors and Authorizer Liaison act as advisors to the Board.

All Board meetings are open to the public, except those closed as permitted by law to discuss legal or personnel issues. Meeting notices and agendas are posted on the school website before the meeting.

The public can address the Board on topics they feel important during Open Mic with a time limit of two minutes. To participate, please arrive early to sign up, as the time limit for all Open Mic speakers is 20 minutes.

PACT School Board of Director meetings are live-streamed on PACT's YouTube Channel.
