PARENTS IN PARTNERSHIP

VIPHS is operated by Parents In Partnership (“PIP”) in accordance with the Charter Schools Act and nonprofit public benefit corporation law. VIP will be governed pursuant to the Bylaws adopted by the PIP Board. The Board of Directors of PIP and the administrative staff will be responsible for all aspects of the day‐to‐day operations of the Charter School, including, but not limited to, making necessary provisions for accounting, budgeting, liability, payroll, purchasing, and insurance. The Board of Directors will help ensure effective organizational planning by approving long‐range goals and annual objectives, monitoring the general policies including but not limited to: compliance, health and safety, facilities, and resource usage. The day‐to‐day operations and management of VIP will be provided by the Executive Director and the administrative staff.

 

The PIP Board of Directors (“Board of Directors” or “Board”) will hold the mission of the Charter School and will ensure Charter School carries out the terms of the charter. The Board of Directors is accountable for the academic, financial, and operational success of the Charter School, and is responsible for providing financial oversight of the Charter School.

The Treasurer and the Finance Committee (if established) will support the Board in monitoring the Charter School’s finances as well as ensure that the Charter School has robust financial and accounting systems and procedures in place. The Board will be responsible for providing fiscal accountability by approving and monitoring the budget, which will be initially reviewed and provided to the Board by the Charter School staff. In compliance with Education Code Section 47606.5, the Charter School will consult with teachers, principals, administrators, other school personnel, parents, and students to develop an annual budget and LCAP (by May of the previous year) and present it to the full Board for review and approval. Monthly financial reports with analyses of actual revenues and expenses versus budgeted amounts will be submitted to the Board along with an income statement and balance sheet. The Board will contract with an approved education auditor to conduct an independent financial audit.

The Board will be responsible for hiring, supporting and evaluating the Executive Director, and will set the compensation for the Executive Director to execute the day‐to‐day management of the Charter School. To ensure the Executive Director is effectively implementing the mission of VIP, the Board will evaluate the Executive Director on a yearly basis and provide a written evaluation to be placed in the personnel file of the Executive Director. The Executive Director will be responsible for hiring, supporting and evaluating all school staff. In addition to managing the Charter School staff and implementing the day‐to‐day program of VIP, the Executive Director will be responsible for providing timely reports to the Board of Directors. Each month, the Executive Director will report back to the board through written management reports, financial and academic dashboards provided at all meetings which will be publicly announced and held in full compliance with the Brown Act. The Charter School Principal is responsible for ensuring the academic success of the Charter School.  The Principal works closely with the Executive Director, and is responsible for submitting reports to the Executive Director regarding school culture, academic data, and professional development of the staff on a regular basis.
