Located in Franklin, Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School (BFCCPS) is a regional public charter school for students in Grades Kindergarten through 8. Among the first charter schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School opened its doors in September 1995. BFCCPS is a regional public charter school and we are in the process of building a brand new facility which will open for the 2019-2020 school year.

With the construction of our new property now well underway; this is an incredibly exciting time to be a part of the BFCCPS Board of Trustees. This new facility will set the course of our institution for decades to come. This is your opportunity to help leave a lasting legacy to our entire community.  If you can contribute your time, thoughtfulness, leadership experience and are interested in serving the BFCCPS Community, we’d love to speak with you about this opportunity.

Expectations:

During the school year, the Board meets once per month for 2-3 hours and has a full-day planning meeting in July.

Generally, there is an hour of prep-time for the monthly meetings.

Special meetings do occur from time to time as needed. All Board members are required to serve on a minimum of one committee (e.g., Finance, Human Resources, Governance, Mission, Facilities). Time commitments vary by committee.

Typically committees meet once per month depending on their annual goals.

Board terms are three years, renewable up to one additional term for a maximum of six years.

Prior board experience is not required. No financial or gift commitment is required for Board members.

Interested candidates are encouraged to attend the Board’s next meeting on Thursday, May 10, 2018. The application deadline is Friday, May 25, 2018. Elections will be held at the May 31, 2018 meeting. Applicants are invited to attend this meeting.
