CCM Governance Board

Creekside Charter School and Squaw Valley Preparatory are part of Creekside Charter Management, a CMO and California not for profit corporation. The Creekside Charter Management Board believes that involved parents and staff are a valuable part of every academic endeavor. As Creekside and Squaw Prep develop and grow, very important decisions are made on staffing, facilities, budget and other operational matters. The CCM Board works in partnership with the Executive Director, teachers, district and parents to consider the schools’ mission and education philosophy, as well as the voice of our stakeholders in carrying out its duty in establishing budgetary and policy standards. We call this team leadership and it often takes place in the form of town hall meetings, CCM Governance Board Meetings, PTO meetings and committee meetings where all are encouraged to participate in a solutions-orientated manner.​ This approach brings amazing ideas to the table and allows us to remain true to our mission of individualizing the education process, not only for all students, but also for parents and staff.
