PCSASC Board of Directors

PCSASC is governed by a 13-member Board of Directors, who represent local and statewide sponsored charter schools across the Palmetto State. The board is responsible for setting policies for the organization, approving the annual budget, hiring and evaluating the executive director, and handling other responsibilities specified in the PCSASC Bylaws and Constitution. The board meets at least four times a year to ensure the smooth functioning of the association.
