The Site Advisory Board forms the governance of the Paradise eLearning Charter School. It includes at least seven members, including the Director and representation from staff, students, parents and community members.
The Site Advisory Board develops the governance procedures for the Site Advisory Board's composition, terms of office, officers, committees and meeting and decision-making procedures, in consultation with the school's Director. These policies continue to clarify and define the specific roles and responsibilities of the Director, the governance team and other school staff and stakeholders. The Site Advisory Board may periodically revise its governance procedures, subject to review and approval by the Paradise Unified School District Governing Board.
Parents are encouraged to join the Site Advisory Board and to participate in their child's education by volunteering at the school and supporting their student(s) at home as they participate in their online classes.
