Each campus of Global Village Academy is governed by a Board of Directors. Global Village Academy's governance model delegates authority and responsibility for day-to-day operations to the Principal. The Board will, in conjunction with the Principal, set clear operation and educational goals, including those mandated by state and federal law (e.g. No Child Left Behind) by which the performance of the Principal and the school will be measured. The Board is autonomous and no personnel from the school district is on the Board.
Each school district that authorized the charter contract has appropriate oversight, while Global Village Academy retains autonomy. The school district will not be involved in Global Village Academy's governance. The school districts oversight may include the budgeting process, financial reporting, reporting of gifts and donations, attendance, alignment of curriculum with state standards, refining the educational program,establishment of achievement goals and academic performance, maintaining student data and records, reconciling cost of services purchased from the district, maintaining certificates of occupancy and complying with ADA requirements, maintaining adequate insurance coverage, and review of progress.
