BCS Board of Directors
BCS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. The school board is self-perpetuating; new members are elected each year serving up to two 3-year terms. Board members must first be elected to the 32+ member BCS Corporation. The corporation meets annually for corporate business and to elect new board members and approve the slate of board officers. This ensures stability and stewardship of the founding Philosophy of Christian Education. The Board is responsible for ensuring that school decisions align with the Mission & Vision, and School Philosophy of BCS and are the keepers of school policy. All monthly school board meetings are open to the school community.
