School Organization Structure
CCSMS prides itself on being responsive to the needs of families. In order to ensure that we achieve this goal CCSMS is organized to give families opportunities to participate in their student’s academic career.
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is the governing board for the Charleston Charter School for Math and Science and govern in accordance with the Charter School Act of 1996 focus is student achievement, to ensure compliance, and sound fiscal management. Board seats are staggered and carry a term of two years which begin at the annual meeting held on the third Monday of July.
School Committees are committees that are responsible for the management of a particular component of our school. School committees are open for any member of our families, faculty, students, or community members to join. The Board of Directors holds the power to appoint the chairperson of a school committee. Individual School Committees may also establish appropriate subcommittees.
Parent Teacher Organization
The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is similar to a Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) or Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA). The PTO is a formal organization that consists of parents, teachers and school staff. The PTO’s goals include volunteerism of parents, encouragement of teachers and students, community involvement, and welfare of students and families.
The Athletic Booster Club is an organization that is formed to contribute money to an associated sports team. The CCSMS Booster Club is run and organized by the parents of the students in the supported sports. Fundraisers make up a large part of the money for supplies and equipment that students may need for their sport. The main principle of funding by a U.S. IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit is that the Booster Club may not discriminate in making grants to students on the basis of their family’s membership in or funding to the club, the family’s fundraising efforts, or time put into club activities.
