Governing Board Members

State-approved Training is required for every member of the governing body of a charter school operating in Florida per State Board of Education Rule 6A.6.0784

Each governing board member must complete a minimum of four (4) hours of instruction focusing on government in the sunshine, conflicts of interest, ethics, and financial responsibility as specified in Section 1002.33(9)(k), F.S.

After the initial four (4) hour training, each member is required, within the subsequent three (3) years and for each three (3) year period thereafter, to complete a two (2) hour refresher training on government in the sunshine, conflicts of interest, ethics, and financial responsibility as specified in Section 1002.33(9)(k), F.S. in order to retain his or her position on the charter school board.

Any member who fails to obtain the two (2) hour refresher training within any three (3) year period must take the four (4) hours of instruction again in order to remain eligible as a charter school board member.

New members joining a charter school board must complete the four (4) hour training within 90 days of their appointment to the board.

Governing board members must receive training from a state-approved trainer.
