Board of Directors

The governance body of New Beginnings Family Academy strongly supports New Beginnings Family Academy's mission to provide its students a rigorous education that ensures academic success and builds character in partnership with their families.

The Board of Directors meets approximately six times per year where they receive updates from the School's Chief Executive Officer, Chief Academic Officer, Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Operations Officer. Meetings are open to parents, teachers and the general public. The Directors approve the annual operating budget each year. Although charter schools in Connecticut receive less, on average, in per-pupil funding from the State, New Beginnings Family Academy has consistently operated on a balanced budget, due to the generosity of private individuals whose contributions not only help close the guaranteed funding gap, but also support a number of programs and services that enhance the New Beginnings Family Academy curriculum and bolster student achievement.

It is the desire of the Directors, and the whole school community, for New Beginnings Family Academy to remain a desirable public school of choice for centuries to come.
