A Board Member’s elected term is three years.
Each year the OMS Board meets for a day (on a weekend) over the summer for Board orientation and to establish priorities for the coming year.
The full Board strives to meet once a month for regular Board business – arrangements can be made to participate by conference call. Board members are expected to participate in, or chair, standing and ad hoc committees as needed. Ongoing Board and Committee work is completed between meetings and requires a varying amount of time commitment and self-direction. Board members are also encouraged to participate at school functions (all-parents meetings, harvest feast, school dance, end-of-year picnic etc.).
If a Board Member resigns his or her position prior to completion of the first term, the Board may decide to proceed with the remaining membership until the next nomination period, or a replacement member can be sought before the end of the year in order to continue and strengthen the work of the Board.
