The charter under which a charter school operates is a contract between the sponsor and the governing board of the school. The governing board of a charter school is a non-profit organization that is responsible for the academic and financial success of the school. Each school’s governing board operates under the conditions set out in its Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. The governing board of EAGLE College Prep is its Board of Directors. Current Board members are:
Judith Wangerin Meyer Chair
Jeffrey Craig-Meyer Vice Chair
Ron Richardson Treasurer
Jeff Cloeter Secretary
The Board of Directors meets on the fourth Monday of the month in January, March, May, July, September and November. The Board is responsible for approving the annual budget, approving monthly financial statements and expenditures, approving school policies, and monitoring the performance of the school on an ongoing basis. Board members also serve on the Finance and School Performance committees that meet between board meetings. Additional board information, including meetings, agendas, and minutes, may be found on the EAGLE website.
A charter school must operate in a fiscally sound manner. The State of Missouri requires that a charter school maintain at least a 3% fund balance. Additionally, a charter school must use standard accounting practices and have adequate internal controls in all financial and procurement procedures.
EAGLE College Prep complies with these requirements. Links to the current Audit and Annual Secretary of the Board Report are provided below.
