The High Point Academy Board of Directors will hold a special election to fill one (1) vacant unexpired seat, which expires on June 30, 2019. High Point Academy is working with the Public Charter School Alliance of South Carolina (PCSASC) to manage the election process. This will ensure integrity and confidentiality in the process.
Anyone who is interested can complete the online filing form beginning Friday, September 14. Candidate filing will close on September 28 at 3:00 P.M.
High Point Academy Board Members are required to attend all board meetings, and within a year of being elected, all board members are required, by law, to attend board training. The free training will be offered across the state and online by the Public Charter School Alliance of South Carolina.
Per the South Carolina Charter Schools Act, as amended, boards are elected by the families of charter school students and employees of the school. If a family has multiple children enrolled at High Point Academy they will receive an e-ballot for each student. Please ensure the school has a current email address on file. Each ballot will have a unique code to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the process. Computers and paper ballots will be available at the school during normal school hours for families with no internet access or with limited computer knowledge.
Thank you for your continued support of High Point Academy and South Carolina’s Charter Schools. You may contact Elections@SCCharterSchools.org if you have any questions during the process.
